Rutland 1200 Windcharger

The Rutland 1200 Windcharger is a new powerful and silent marine turbine for on-board comfort and safety, providing an energy supply using the free and natural power in the wind! The Windcharger is a must for on-board energy essentials such as lighting, chilled food and drinks, communications and navigation equipment, water pumps, plus a wide range of consumer electrical devices.

Hi-Tech Blade Design

Working quietly in the background, the Rutland 1200 Windcharger is a new turbine at the leading edge of wind energy for boats.The unique high tech-blade design runs smoothly and silently delivering more power than any other turbine in its size range. This means more energy stored for your energy needs. With a Rutland 1200 Windcharger installed alternator running time is eliminated or reduced saving fuel and other costs associated with engine running.

Rutland Multifunctional Controller

Designed specifically for the Rutland 1200 Windcharger, the Rutland multifunctional controller combines your wind and solar systems and provides a highly efficient renewable energy charge controller on-board. Keep 2 battery banks charged and view the output on an optional Bluetooth connected display on the chart table. The Rutland Multifunctional Controller is included with the Rutland 1200 Windcharger


  • Turbine Diameter: 1220mm

  • Turning radius: 622mm

  • Performance: 286w at 11m/s and 483w pre-electronic high wind protection mode

  • Performance curve data(appox):  35W at 10 knots, 110w at 15kts, 230w at 20kts, with pre-electronic high wind protection mode enabled to limit output to ~483w at 27kts.

  • MPPT Controller: MPPT continuously matches the turbine and generator speeds to their point of optimum performance

  • Weight: 7.8kg

  • Power Output: 3 phase AC power output from the turbine enables longer distances between the turbine and battery bank to minimise voltage drop

  • Input: The Rutland Controller is designed for windcharger input plus up to 250W of solar panels

  • Power optimising Maximum Power Point Tracking on the turbine boosts output

  • Power boosting MPPT on solar panel input enables high voltage solar panels to be connected and optimised for battery charging

  • High wind protection reduces turbine speed in excessive winds

  • Dual output to 2 battery banks splits the charge to both domestic and engine batteries

  • Marine grade stainless steel and aluminium components and other modern durable materials give a high quality build and finish.

  • Optional Bluetooth connected remote digital display available.
