MRP taps Siemens for South African wind and PV projects

Windkraft ist integraler Teil der Planungen für Desertec. Der abgebildete Windpark ¿Black Law Windfarm¿ wurde weithin bekannt, wegen seiner besonderen Umweltverträglichkeit: Er wurde zum Teil auf dem Gelände einer ehemaligen Kohlemine errichtet. Dieses wurde vom Betreiber im Rahmen eines Habitat-Management-Plans vollständig zu einem Feuchtgebiet renaturiert und umfasst außerdem Weideflächen sowie Nutzwald. Die gesamte installierte Leistung beträgt rund 125 Megawatt.Wind power is an essential aspect of the plans for Desertec. The wind farm shown, ¿Black Law wind farm¿ has largely become known for its exceptional environmental compatibility. It was constructed in part on the grounds of a former coalmine. This was completely renaturated as wetlands by the operating company within a habitat management plan and also comprises pastureland and commercial timberland. The farm has a combined output of around 125 megawatts.

Siemens has blasted into the South African renewables market, with Mainstream Renewable Power (MRP) hiring the German industrial giant as turbine supplier for the 138MW Jeffrey’s Bay wind farm and lead contractor for two 50MW PV arrays.
