The test center will consist of an Ampyx Power Airborne Wind System with a ground station, a generator and an onsite control and maintenance center.
Test Center Australia
Australia’s landscape and weather conditions present a great opportunity to test and verify our Ampyx Power Airborne Wind System. We’re currently prospecting in Geelong, Victoria for a site to test our next prototype (AP3).
What are we looking for?
The plant needs to be appropriately sited with due consideration given to risks to people and property. Irrespective of these considerations, the non-commercial and novel nature of the project means that the suitable site is likely to be found in an area of low population density. Proximity to a cost effective grid connection and a good wind resource are prerequisites. Distance from other aviation activities and full control of access to the area of flight are also required.
