Infinite Power Corporation, a leading American clean energy firm, is set to revolutionize Fiji’s renewable energy sector with its advanced wind turbines. The company’s local branch, Infinite Power Clean Energy (Fiji) Pte Ltd (IPC), recently finalized a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Fiji’s Ministry of Fisheries and Forestry. This agreement marks the beginning of a project to install these cutting-edge turbines across 27 sites in Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, and Rotuma.
IPC’s founder and CEO, Robert Beam, highlighted the uniqueness of their technology, stating, “Our wind turbines are ultra-modern, differing from the traditional two or three-bladed propeller designs commonly seen in the past.”
IPC has agreed with the Ministry of Fishery and Forestry to invest $US55 million in producing and installing 27 cutting-edge wind turbines. These turbines, which will generate 19.75 Megawatts, will be placed across 27 sites currently owned by the Ministry. The unique design of these turbines features a ‘wing ring’ composed of stainless steel and aluminum, capable of generating electricity with just one mile per hour of wind. According to Mr. Beam, these locations rely on diesel generators for power.
