Roodeplaat Wind Farm
The Inyanda/ Roodeplaat Wind Farm is a proposed 160MW wind farm located to the north west of Port Elizabeth. Africoast was appointed to do the civil and structural design services for the wind farm, which consisted of about 30 km of gravel roads through mountainous terrain to provide access to the wind turbine positions. Africoast was also responsible for the platform designs as well as the design of the turbine bases and water systems.
Africoast undertook route assessments for transportation of the wind turbine components from the Port of Ngqura at Coega to site.
The annual electricity production at the metering point is estimated at 667GWh per annum.
