XANT is proud to announce the shipment of another containerized XANT M turbine: a XANT M with tilt-up tower is on its way to Singapore. XANT has been selected by ENGIE Lab to provide a XANT M for their microgrid as part of the Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator-Singapore (REIDS) project.
The REIDS project, an initiative led by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is the first micro-grid in the region and the largest hybrid micro-grid in the tropics. It will test and demonstrate the integration of solar, wind, tidal, diesel, storage and power-to-gas technologies, and ensure these energy sources operate well together. (source: NTU).
ENGIE, world’s largest independent electricity producer will develop a diverse range of clean energy technologies for distributed generation and has chosen XANT as its wind technology partner. This thanks to the containerized transport, crane-less erection, high reliability and low OPEX. In addition, the XANT M with guyed tower can be tilted down in less than an hour, making it particularly suitable for hurricane-prone regions. The first phase of the project, with the construction of the XANT M Wind Turbine, is to be completed by mid-2017.
