Offering you the world’s most robust small wind turbines

Kingspan Wind provide reliable hybrid power solution

Kingspan Wind was asked to review an off grid setup on an island located in an inshore lake in the Republic of Ireland in mid-2015. On the island there are three dwellings, a large shed and a number of out buildings. The original system which was installed over eight years ago comprised of an 8kW wind turbine, battery storage and a single phase 28KVA diesel generator which was due to be replaced. The existing electrical system that is in place is on single phase.

Kingspan Wind was asked to review an off grid setup on an island located in an inshore lake in the Republic of Ireland in mid-2015. On the island there are three dwellings, a large shed and a number of out buildings.

The original system which was installed over eight years ago comprised of an 8kW wind turbine, battery storage and a single phase 28KVA diesel generator which was due to be replaced. The existing electrical system that is in place is on single phase. 

The original turbine had not worked for a number of years and the island was solely relying on the diesel generator for all its power production.

Kingspan Wind visited the island and undertook a survey of the power consumption and the operational energy requirements for the inhabitant’s.

The brief for Kingspan Wind was to come up with a solution that would reduce the amount of diesel consumed on the island, provide a stable, reliable and secure source of power and to utilise the existing infrastructure if possible.

Kingspan Wind recommended using a Sunny Island system which comprised of a Kingspan Wind KW6 wind turbine, a 6kW solar PV array, a new battery storage system and a 22kVA single phase JCB Broadcrown generator.

The system was designed, project managed and installed by the team at Kingspan Wind.

The new system that is in place will provide a reliable and clean source of renewable power for many years to come.

The system is now a modular system, which will allow the client in years to come to add more wind, solar pv and batteries as the needs arise.
