The wind power project is expected to be operational by the third quarter of 2011. The company said that the system will be installed at the Hawi wind farm on the island of Hawai’i and connected to the Hawai’i Electric Light Company utility grid.

Also, the equipment purchase and associated service contracts, valued at about $1.8 million dollars, require Altairnano to build, ship, install and commission its ALTI-ESS advanced energy storage system, and provide technical support and system monitoring and reporting over a period of three years, Altair added.
