Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex has received an order from independent power producer Cennergi for the delivery and turnkey installation of the 134.4MW Amakhala Emoyeni wind farm
Cennergi’s principal shareholders are the South African mining group Exxaro Resources and India’s Tata Power.
Nordex will start construction work for the complete infrastructure of the wind farm at the site south of Bedford in South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province in the third quarter of 2014.
Installation of the 56 N117/2400 turbines will follow in the second quarter of 2015. After completion of the work of connecting it to the grid, the handover of the wind farm wil take place in June 2016. The scope of supply will also include a service agreement for a period of ten years initially.
The next round of tenders will be held in August this year. The goal will be to further increase the share of renewable energies in South Africa’s power supply system.
Nordex SE management board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard said, “This order once again underlines the fact that with the N117/2400 turbine Nordex currently offers one of the most efficient wind turbine generators in the market and is successful in many international growth markets. It is also a further important building block to create a solid foundation for our new subsidiary in Cape Town.”
