The Gual SteoEolian is a vertical-axis wind turbine composed of a fixed stator channeling the wind at its optimal force onto a mobile rotor. This enables the StatoEolien to be installed in urban environments and take advantage of the turbulent winds which are unexploitable by a horizontal wind turbine.

The power curve of this French design is surprisingly different than power curves for conventional turbines because the output increases until the velocity of the wind is above the lower hurricane levels. It can generate in wind speeds up to 150 km/h (93 mph), and will withstand winds up to 200 km/h (124 mph). Hence, the electricity production rate is 30% superior to horizontal axis wind turbines.

"The quiet mechanism of the StatoEolian, combined with its compact and robust structure allows integration in all terrains and environments, making it possible to integrate it into an urban surrounding. Everyone will be able to have their own source of 100% renewable energy within the comfort of their own home." http://www.gual-industrie.com/english/applicationang.html

Turbulence in the leeward side prevents wind from entering the machine to push the blades in the wrong direction, thus reducing this braking effect.

The rotor blades are built on the same principle as modern aircrafts wings (technique known as "Skin + Ribs"). This process allows the rotor blades and the stator wings to be not only rigid but also very light.
