JMCC WING, LLC - one of five finalists in Water Abundance XPRIZE powered by Tata Group and Australian Aid

Using two technology advancements, JMCC WING, LLC (Delaware) qualified for a $50,000 Milestone Award in the Water Abundance XPRIZE powered by Tata Group and Australian Aid.  The competition began with 98 teams worldwide and now five finalist teams have been selected to compete in the final round for the $1.5 Million Grand Prize this July (2018) to efficiently harvest water from air using renewable energy.  The McCanney WING Generator (Patents pending – JMCC WINGTM) is the power source for their line of Atmospheric Water Generators.   This ushers in "The Jet Age of Wind Energy" according to owner and inventor Physicist James McCanney.

The Water Abundance XPRIZE requires the atmospheric water to cost less than two cents per liter using only renewable energy.  Teams cannot use grid power.   Standard alternative energy sources such as the three blade wind generators or solar are far too expensive to meet this low figure.  Enter McCanney's invention the WING Generator, which can scale to very large sizes.  McCanney says "someday the WING will scale large enough to replace nuclear and coal fired electrical power plants with a single unit."   Other WING applications include energy for pumping water, desalinization, farms, car charging stations, compressed air, mining (both physical and crypto mining) and more.  

The WING is Eco-Friendly.  Birds see it and fly around.  There will be only a few not thousands covering the landscape.  They are graceful and beautiful people love to watch them.  They are silent (no high vibration or noise).

McCanney states that since the WING works efficiently from low to very high wind speeds, its patented design extracts far more energy than previous wind generators.  The cost per unit of energy goes down exponentially with increasing size.   His "Distributed Energy" philosophy, published in his 2009 book "McCanney WING Generator – World Energy Project", shows how one day a distributed network of large WING Generators will power all our energy needs including electric transportation, while providing clean water for the world. 

There is an Indiegogo Fund Raiser to help the JMCC WING team win the Water Abundance XPRIZE competition.  You can help make this happen.

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
