Tunisia: Revolutionary bladeless wind turbine could change game in wind farms

Tunisian innovators have looked to the past for inspiration from sails on ships to come up with designs for new bladeless turbines.

A start-up known as Saphon Energy has developed a new turbine design which is quieter, safer and more efficient than traditional wind turbines and is capable of capturing twice as much wind energy.

37-year-old engineer Anis Aouini leads the Tunis-based firm. He says that they looked to the old technology used by sailors of the ancient civilisation of Carthage for inspiration.
