  • U.S. Air Force, 611th Air Support Group

    U.S. Air Force, 611th Air Support Group

    Project Name: Design and Install Hybrid Wind/Diesel Project
    Customer: U.S. Air Force, 611th Air Support Group
    Location: Tin City Long Range Radar Station, Alaska
    Entity Performed: TDX Power, Inc.


    Designed and constructed a 225-kW power generation platform using a Vestas V27 wind turbine—the first for the U.S. Air Force’s Pacific theater and part of the EPA’s Green Power Partnership. TDX Power collaborated with the U.S. Air Force to conduct a feasibility study that involved developing a wind/diesel modeling and simulation software program and calculating the operationality and anticipated fuel savings. The foundation of the package resulted in arctic modifications to the Vestas V27 wind turbine, which included an electric-based heat system to blow warm air up the tower base and through the tips of the turbine blades to shed the anticipated icing load. TDX Power was the principal design firm and general contractor for this remote wind turbine installation and power plant control system upgrade, including supporting switchgear, governors, electric boilers, diesel controls, and operational controls with HMI and SCADA packages. This system became fully operational in 2011 and has the potential to provide the Air Force with an overall energy savings of $433,000 annually.

  • CH2M Hill

    CH2M Hill

    Project Name: Design and Install Wind Turbine Power Systems
    Customer: CH2M Hill
    Location: Cape Lisburne and Cape Romanzof, Alaska
    Entity Performed: TDX Power, Inc.


    TDX Power is contracted to design wind turbine power generation systems at two U.S. Air Force Long Range Radar Stations on the west coast of Alaska. Each site will include two Vestas V27 wind turbines with supporting switchgear, governors, electric boilers, diesel controls, and operational controls including HMI and SCADA packages. Once the design is complete, TDX Power will install the systems. The project will reduce emissions, diesel generator run time, and fuel usage at each LRRS. Wind power will be used to generate electric power and heat to replace electricity and heat produced by a conventional boiler systems and diesel generators.

  • Tanadgusix Corporation

    Tanadgusix Corporation

    Project Name: Hybrid Wind/Diesel Power System
    Customer: Tanadgusix Corporation
    Location: Saint Paul, Alaska
    Entity Performed: Tanadgusix Corporation; TDX Power, Inc.


    Tanadgusix Corporation contracted with Northern Power to design and install the wind/diesel system on St. Paul Island. After completion, TDX Power began operating the first Native owned and operated independent, hybrid wind/diesel power plant in Alaska. Formally commissioned in 1999, this project capitalized on the emerging hybrid technology as a way to combat escalating fossil fuel prices. The major generation for the hybrid system is provided by a 225-kW Vestas V27 wind turbine. The system supplies electricity and space heat to an 88,000 SF industrial/airport facility and has reduced fuel consumption at the complex by 45%. Future plans involve expanding the wind power capacity and heating infrastructure. A total of 3 Vestas V27 wind turbines are currently installed, and a project is under way to connect the microgrid to the St. Paul municipal utility grid.
