Viking as a Stand-Alone Energy Solution
The Viking wind turbines are compatible with stand-alone systems (also called off-grid systems), where the turbines deliver the energy production directly to an independent unit and are thereby not connected to the electrical grid.
A stand-alone energy solution means that the wind turbines can be places in areas, where there is no access to an established electrical grid or at places, where the coupling to an electricity supply meter and any added subscription is economically unsustainable.
Instead of connection to the electrical grid, the production from the wind turbines is stored directly in battery banks or the turbine runs parallel with a diesel generator. From here the electricity will be converted so the energy can be used for various electrical devices.
Furthermore, the Viking VS wind turbine can do without a battery bank and a diesel generator by adding an UPS (uninterrupted power supply) for the wind turbine. Hereby you can use the electricity directly from the wind turbine while it is being produced. The UPS is used for starting up the wind turbines after a period without any wind.
The wind turbines are hereby very valuable in sparsely populated areas and/or remote areas without electricity supply. This could e.g. be isolated settlements or refugees camps as this solution permits lighting, heating, communication with the outside world and a lot of other necessities, which are essential to a community in the 21st century.
