Overview

The Kangnas wind farm was successfully developed by our development team.  In June 2018, it reached financial close and construction work is well underway.  It is expected to become operational in 2020.

It was one of two wind farms awarded preferred bidder status in June 2015 under Round 4 of the South Africa Government REIPPPP. 

Once operational, the wind farm will have the capacity to generate around 563,500 MWh of clean renewable energy per year and is expected to supply electricity to power up to 120,000 South African homes.  It will elminate approximately 550,000 tonnes of carbon emissions each year when compared to tradititional fossil fuel power plants.
