Wind diesel system to power Estonian island of Osmussaare

A wind diesel system has been installed on the remote Estonian island of Osmussaare for the national border guard. The 30 kVA rated system is the only source of power on the island and is one of several export projects that Swedish manufacturer PitchWind Systems AB hopes to complete. PitchWind Systems, which was set up two years ago, specialises in small scale wind plant ranging from 20-40 kW, particularly for remote areas where the electricity network is weak or in some cases non-existent. Two grid connected Pitch Wind turbines have been commissioned in Sweden, while plans are underway to install a similar wind-diesel system on another Estonian island, Vaindloo, again in cooperation with local partner Empower EEE.
