The Solar Cyclone Tower comprises a 5km radius greenhouse, with a 1200m tower in the centre.
- 32 turbines are arrayed around the base. Each is rated at 10MW, and
- The SCT Tower will not only allow heated air to rise but also to extract vast amounts of fresh water.
The updraft itself is expected to exceed 30m/second. The energy in the air over a year exceeds 26 billion MJ, equivalent to 848MW average energy.
