In the craze of shipping deadlines, purchase orders and factory-acceptance tests, we sometimes overlook what the purpose is of what we do at XANT. In the case of off-grid village power installations, it’s not until we arrive on-site that we meet face with the end-user. In Pilot Point, AK the XANT team got a particularly[…]
How the JEEP approach led to breaking the rules XANT set out in the mid-size wind industry to do things differently. We believe the challenges of putting up turbines in remote locations and keeping them spinning are very different from building wind power plants. We set out to fight the misconception that wind power is[…]
XANT is very proud to announce we will deliver the XANT M wind turbine for the mini-grids of 4 fishermen villages on the Mauritanian cost north of the capital Nouakchott. The project objective is to optimize the existing mini-grids in Mauritania by increasing the share of renewable energy and developing appropriate business models to ensure[…]
XANT has delivered wind turbines for all kind of mini-grids across the globe: from a wind-diesel system in a fishermen village in Alaska, to a large multi-MW system in the Pacific to an experimental system on a demonstrator. If systems are being configured without considering wind power, this might lead to non-optimized systems and thus[…]
The economics of distributed wind projects could be looking promising as interest builds in the development of hybrid distributed energy development. The addition of wind can sweeten the financial performance of solar-plus-storage projects, but the calculation is technically and economically complex. That’s one reason the latest release of HOMER Grid incorporates a wind module. XANT[…]
Introduction Access to clean water is of paramount importance for ensuring necessary levels of sanitation and health. According to the World Health Organization over 844 million people lack even a basic drinking-water service, including 159 million people who are dependent on surface water. Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated[…]
Test, test, test and test again Recent tests at the REIDS micro-grid demonstrator demonstrated the capability of the XANT M turbine to act as a controlled power source. Together with the teams of Schneider Electric, ENGIE Lab Singapore and the Nanyang Technological University the firsts tests were performed with in an all-renewable configuration of the[…]
The Port of Ostend has become a leading wind energy hub providing training and accommodation for the maintenance crews and serving as sail-out port for the installation of the offshore farms in the North Sea. In a setting where each square meter of ground surface is an asset that can be rented out, the choice[…]
This year XANT will broaden its product portfolio with the new XANT L platform, taking the XANT USP’s to the 250-330kW power level. The XANT L extends the suitability of the XANT turbines into the MW-size range and for larger off-grid projects that require more installed wind capacity, the XANT L will be a more[…]
Apart from cost-efficient remote-power plants, XANT wind turbines also become assets on a balance sheet. Larger projects consisting of multiple turbines, or projects in rural areas of the south are often debt-financed. Understandably banks ranging from international development aid agencies to the branch office of your local bank like to see an independent review by[…]
