Electrawinds Belgium to invest EUR 110 M in South African wind farm

Electrawinds Belgium is finalising the feasibility in setting up a commercial wind farm which will be located in the Coega Industrial Development Zone (IDZ) in the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality of South Africa.
This investment will see Electrawinds invest R1.2 billion into a Coega Wind Farm Project producing green renewable energy.

This will be one of the first private initiatives of its kind to take place in South Africa.

This project will result in 25 wind turbines of 2.3 megawatts each being built in the Coega IDZ and is anticipated to be fully operation by 2011.

In addition, Electrawinds will offer educational scholarships to top local students who are interested in furthering their studies in renewable energy.

Electrawinds has appointed the CSIR to conduct the environmental assessment for the project.
