The Industralization has begun!
WIND my ROOF has called on SEGULA Technologies and its subsidiary SIMRA to industrialise and assemble the first eight WindBox wind-solar modules, which will be released in February 2022. The aim is a long-term collaboration with the French engineering giant.

SEGULA Technologies, industrial partner of WIND my ROOF
SEGULA Technologies is a global group and one of the French leaders in the field of engineering. Active in several industrial fields, they offer their expertise to innovative start-up companies via a support programme called HeXplora, of which WIND my ROOF is now part.
Behind the scenes of the assembly of a building wind turbine
Segula Technologies has thus supported WIND my ROOF in the production of its first eight rooftop wind turbines. SIMRA’s teams are in charge of their assembly.
In a dedicated area of the Saint-Nazaire workshop, two fitter-fitter technicians follow the detailed assembly instructions for the WindBox. Initially assembled in ten hours, rationalisation efforts have reduced the assembly time to eight hours per module, or one WindBox per day. Another area is dedicated to the production of the concrete studs, which are used to hold the WindBoxes on the roofs according to the project.
For Yanis, Technical Director and co-founder, and Quentin, mechanical engineer at WIND my ROOF, this is another step in the startup’s development.
This first series is part of an industrialisation process with the Segula Technologies group. An assembly series of 100 modules is already being prepared in order to carry out future WIND my ROOF projects.
