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[…]
Societal change as our most precious achievement Triggered by the frustration of seeing too many hybrid-power projects fail because of inadequate technology, the XANT team set out to design robust wind turbines for the off-grid power market back in 2008. We have come a long way since and XANT turbines have now spread across the[…]
When one of the biggest utility companies in the world turned to XANT to find a repowering solution for an older mid-size wind turbine, our design department gladly accepted the challenge. Raising the bar even higher, they wanted a gearless turbine as replacement of the current machine to be installed on the existing tower. And[…]
REIDS The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is leading the Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator – Singapore (REIDS) project, which will be the largest hybrid microgrid test and research platform in the tropics. XANT was selected by ENGIE Lab, one of REIDS’ partners, to supply a XANT M turbine with tilt-up tower for the Phase 1 of[…]
A few decades ago the rural electrification market was caught in a Catch-22: those with the need (for clean affordable electricity) did not have the money to pay for it, those with the money don’t want to invest in the technology, and those with the technology did not have access to those who have the[…]
Introduction The location is an island in the Atlantic Ocean and one of the more remote places on this earth. The local utility company has put out an RFP for the installation and operation of renewable power plants on the island grid. Applicants should act as Independent Power Producers (IPP) and propose a Power Purchase[…]
XANT turbines are conceived for operation in small grids. Whether called micro-grids, island grids or even off-grid, the smaller the grid the bigger the challenge to balance consumption and generation of electricity! This is conflicting with the increasing use of renewables to power these grids. XANT turbines address this challenge without the need for adding[…]
Continued improvement in a joint effort with our component suppliers has led to significant production cost reduction of the XANT M platform. Further integration of functions, reduction of the number of bolted interfaces, de-featuring of the first generation XANT M to the essentials have made it possible to generate electricity at a Levelized Cost of[…]
When Mike Stuart decided to invest in his own on-site electricity production, XANT was the obvious choice: the strong winds in the northern tip of Scotland ask for a robust class IA turbine. Gales, often combined with heavy rains, cold spells with snowdrift: the XANT M is being put to a strenuous test. But when[…]
The village of Pilot Point (AK, USA) has been relying upon diesel fuel for its electricity production consuming almost 1,000 barrels (120,000l) of oil per year. Average residential electricity tariffs are in the 0.35$/kWh range. Intelligent Energy Systems together with XANT will convert the existing electricity supply of the village into a hybrid system running[…]
