Concor Infrastructure has been appointed, in a consortium with Conco, by global wind and solar company Mainstream Renewable Power as the construction contractor for two large scale wind farms.
The wind farms, located in the Northern and Western Cape, represent an investment of approximately R6.6. billion and construction will commence in June 2018.
Eric Wisse, managing director of Concor Infrastructure, says the company is well positioned to undertake these two major projects with its depth of experience and expertise. He points to the successful completion of the Loeriesfontein and Khobab Wind Farms in 2017 and prior to that the Jeffreys Bay and Noupoort Wind Farms.
“Concor Infrastructure has an established reference base that speaks to our capability and responsiveness, which enables us to deliver complex projects on schedule, within budget, and most importantly safely,” he says.
The 140 MW Kangnas wind farm is situated 52 km east of Springbok in the Northern Cape while the 110 MW Perdekraal East wind farm is about 80 km northeast of Ceres in the Western Cape. The wind farms are expected to begin commercial operation in 2020.
