Distributed Energy Systems Corp. (DESC), a provider of wind power technology, has received an order for its advanced Northwind 100 gearless wind turbines from Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro).

Three Northwind 100 turbines will be installed in Ramea, a small, remote island on the south coast of Newfoundland and one of 22 isolated communities served by Hydro. Ramea is the site of a five-year research and development project for an isolated wind-hydrogen-diesel generation system. This project is focused on developing an environmentally friendly energy solution to be used in small, isolated electrical distribution systems.

"The Ramea Wind-Hydrogen-Diesel energy project has the potential to significantly reduce Hydro's reliance on diesel generation and provide clean, renewable energy to isolated customers," says Greg Jones, Hydro's acting vice president of business development.
