Peter Island

Peter Island draws guests to its romantic seclusion, its untouched beauty and world-class resort atmosphere.

Named one of the “Best Places to Stay in the World” and “Top 20 Islands” in the world by Conde Nast Traveler, the private resort recently completed an extensive, multi-million dollar renovation to recapture the charisma and natural charm exclusive to the British Virgin Islands.

In March 2010 the start was made to install two WES250 Hybrid wind turbines on Peter Island. The turbines are connected to the power grid on the island and work together with diesel generators. When there is enough wind the WES turbines take care of the full energy needs of the island. When there is not enough wind or when the demand is too high the diesel generators will automatically start to produce electricity.

The WES in board hoisting crane helps to protect the turbines against hurricanes. After a hurricane alert the rotor can be brought down, on short notice, without the need for an external crane.

This particular project consists of:

  • Location: Peter Island (BVI)
  • Year of installation: 2010
  • Number of turbines: 2
  • Turbine type: WES250
  • Type of grid connection: Hybrid
  • Tower type: Tubular
  • Tower height: 30 meter
