Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) will supply two wind farms in South Africa including 109 units of onshore wind turbines. The SWT-2.3-108 turbine will each feature a rated capacity of 2.3MW and a 108 meters diameter rotor.
While the 140MW Kangnas wind farm project is located near Springbok in the Northern Cape, another 110MW Perdekraal East wind farm is situated 80 kilometres northeast of Ceres in the Western Cape. A 10 year full service agreement will secure the performance of the wind farms. A consortium led by Mainstream Renewable Power was awarded the contracts for the wind farms by the Department of Energy in South Africa as part of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme (REIPPPP). While Siemens Gamesa will start the supply of the wind turbines early 2019, the wind farm’s completion is planned for 2020.
