With the commissioning of its final wind turbine at 140MW Nxuba Wind Farm in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, Enel Green Power (EGP) commenced with the generation and delivery of energy, despite challenges attributed to COVID-19 containment measures and national lockdown.
The Nxuba Wind Farm is one of five projects awarded to EGP South Africa in the fourth round of the country’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) and, once the commissioning of all the wind turbines is complete, will enable the full production of 460GWh per year to the grid.
“Nxuba Wind Farm is yet another example of EGP’s commitment to renewables and sustainability in South Africa and globally. We are particularly excited about unlocking the potential of the abundant renewable energy sources in South Africa, as well as supporting the local economy”, said William Price, head of EGP in South Africa.
