October/November, Viking Wind is supplying the town Sisimiut, Greenland with a wind turbine, which will be a part of a pilot project to test the stamina of the wind turbine under extreme weather conditions, as occurring in the artic area.
The Greenland project is development of “Off grid” projects for the future (further reading here). The Wind turbine will produce energy to a unit independent of an established electrical grid. It gives the opportunity to produce electricity in isolated areas with sparse electricity, without dependency on fossil fuel. That offers secluded areas to be self-sufficient and not depending solely on more pollutant energy sources. The bonus is more sustainability and less pollution and will bring endless new possibilities for rural areas.
