Enel Green Power, a global company involved in the production of energy from renewable sources wordwide, has begun construction on its Oyster Bay wind farm in the Eastern Cape.
The €180-million investment marks Enel’s fourth wind project in South Africa.
“The 41-turbine farm, due in the 2nd quarter of 2021, is expected to generate around 568 GWh per year,” said Enel head Antonio Cammisecra.
The wind farm is supported by a 20-year power supply agreement signed with Eskom as part of the state’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Procurement Programme (REIPPPP).
