Sept 14, 2017 – iS5 Communications Inc. deployed in China’s largest Solar Plus Microgrid Project in Tibet China.

iS5Com products are successfully used in China’s largest solar plus storage microgrid project up and running in Tibet. China’s largest solar plus storage microgrid project is now connected to the grid in a high-elevation area of Shuanghu which is located in China’s Tibet province.

“This certification is a testament to our strong focus on quality and an integral part of our continuous improvement culture. By meeting the criteria for this standard, iS5Com demonstrates our commitment to our customers and to our quality processes,” said Clive Dias, President and CEO. “Our quality management system has been measured against an international benchmark and found compliant. I would like to congratulate everyone involved in helping iS5Com to achieve this standard.”

The microgrid project aims to provide electricity to over 14,000 people in the vicinity. In the past, the region’s harsh wind, low temperatures and high elevation posed challenges to Ethernet Switches, inverters and other solar components. Shuanghu microgrid has been designed for remote monitoring to allow for unattended operation, providing over 6.6 million kWh per year to the area; previously this region has been plagued with power outages and power shortages.

“iS5Com devices proven reliability demonstrates our commitment to ensure we build quality products specific to the stringent demands of harsh environments. We adhere and exceed to IEC61850 specifications, along with our domain Expertise in the Power Utility space our customers expect dependability”, says CEO of iS5Com Clive Dias.
