Over the past years we have acquired
extensive expertise in the field of power generation from renewable
energy sources - in particular in developing and executing Wind-Hybrid
Our team in Auroville Wind Systems (AWS) designed, manufactured and
supplied the first "Wind-Diesel Plant" in India.
Our services include wind power resource assessment, feasibility studies
with wind-power-plant performance simulation, and micro sighting.
We manufacture and market our own Wind Generators (WGs) in the range
of 1 - 50 kW.
Auroville Wind Systems is located in
Auroville, the International Township on the South-East coast of India.
Our WG's are often installed in combination
with solar power or diesel generators as Hybrid Power Systems. As sole
means of power-supply these systems find application in communities
in remote locations were the utility grid does not extend. AWS has installed
these Hybrid Systems in many States in India such as Tamil Nadu, Gujarath,
Sikkim, Laghak and West Bengal.
AWS is the first company in India to offer entirely indigenously manufactured
wind battery chargers.
AWS designed, manufactured and supplied the first "Wind-Diesel
Plant" in India. A 500 kW Wind farm on Sagar Island in the Ganges
Delta in West Bengal. This project was funded by the Ministry of Non-Conventional
Energy Sources (MNES) and Indian Canadian Environment Fund (ICEF) to
demonstrate the autonomous operation of asynchronous wind generators
in an isolated grid -a technology developed in Canada. The diesel generators
are used to start up ten 50 kW wind-generators. Once the power output
of the wind-generators is stabilized, the diesel generators are switched
off. AWS operates the 1st phase of the power plant since March 2002
and supplies power to 7 local villages. This is the first system of
its kind in Asia.
