The first mid-sized wind turbine in Singapore
Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator – Singapore (REIDS), is the first micro-grid in South-East Asia and the largest hybrid micro-grid in the tropics. It will test the integration of solar, wind, tidal, diesel, storage and power-to-gas technologies, and demonstrate how these energy sources operate well together.
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-21 Wind Turbine, is to be completed by end of 2016.
XANT is a spin-off company of 3E, created with an investment of Vyncke NV, a power plant construction and operation firm specialized In biomass plants, and of Jo Versavel, business angel.
