The South African Department of Energy issued letters to preferred bidders on Friday announcing the results for the fourth round of its Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers Programme (REIPPP). Enel Green Power won energy supply contracts for three wind power projects, including the Oyster Bay project that had been developed by RES.
The 142MW Oyster Bay wind farm will comprise 43 turbines and generate in excess of 560GWh per year. The project will displace more than half a million tonnes of CO2 in each year of operation, making a dent in carbon emissions by offsetting the economy’s reliance on coal-fired generation.
Duncan Ayling, Development Director for RES Southern Africa, said:
“We are delighted that the Oyster Bay wind project has received preferred bidder status from the South African Department for Energy. Such high wind energy sites represent excellent value for money for South Africans and bring socio-economic benefits to the local community through job creation, enterprise development and community trust schemes.”
Oyster Bay will be majority-owned, built and operated by Enel Green Power, a leading European renewable energy power producer. Between now and financial close, RES will continue to support the project and deliver development services in cooperation with Enel Green Power.
