Offshore platform power supply in the Caspian Sea, Kazakhstan

In some remote industrial applications, the outcome of a mission may depend on a few Watts.

Windkinetic containerized standalone systems are the best solution for offshore platform power supply.

For the Caspian Sea installation, our mission is to provide reliable DC power to a radio repeater which is part of a VTMS (Vessel Travel Management & Information System).

The operating conditions are hard in this region of Kazakhstan, where temperatures can go down to -40°C in the winter and up to 50°C in the summer. The sea environment makes it even more difficult to operate any kind of technology.

Our customer requested a system able to supply 24/7/365 power generation from renewable energy with a 7 days autonomy storage system. No diesel backup was allowed.  The challenge was the right fit for us!

After one and a half years of operation, we are so proud to have delivered power without any downtime. Windkinetic hybrid offgrid system has worked perfectly and we are now ready to deliver tens of them in similar applications.

System Characteristics

The system is completely installed on a custom 10 feet container with 80 kWh of LiFePO4 storage, 5 kWp of solar array and 2 kWp of wind power. All the parameters and system operation are constantly monitored from our headquarter in Florence, Italy thanks to our proprietary WindKinetic’s remote monitoring and control system.

Our customer receives SMS and emails if some values go out of the expected range, making it possible to determine potential issues before they rise into an actual problem, allowing to switch from a reactive to a proactive approach to maintenance.

These systems are the perfect fit for any type of renewable energy industrial applications where reliability and uptime is a must.

Telecom operators, mining, oil&gas, telemetry, offshore platform. These are all sectors that we are happy to serve with fully customized and custom engineered systems.
