Never measured one, reports at the time were:
poor, lower than conventional, bladed, turbines.
Some accounts have it that purchasers were required
to pay before testing....
My simplistic approach:
since the patent is long expired, if its not in use,
there is a reason.

Depends on why it is being built.
If 'for fun': why not? Its been done.
