Distributed Energy Systems Corporation announced the shipment of two 100-kW wind power systems for installation this summer on the Malaysian resort island of Pulau Perhentian.

The company, which creates and delivers products and solutions to the emerging decentralized energy marketplace, said the project consists of installing and commissioning two NorthWind 100 wind turbines with a 100 kW photovoltaic energy system. The wind and solar installation will be integrated with the island’s isolated diesel grid in cooperation with the country’s national utility.

Distributed Energy Systems also will supply and install its wind turbine supervisory control and data acquisition system for the site off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia. SmartView software will allow remote monitoring and control of the wind turbines.

The wind and solar project reflects the development of renewable energy as the “fifth fuel” resource under the Malaysian government’s fuel diversification

policy.     EC
