Oyster Bay Wind Farm

The Oyster Bay wind farm, which has 41 wind turbines, is located near the coastal town of Oyster Bay in the Kouga municipality in Eastern Cape. It is a subtropical area whose economy is largely based on tourism and agriculture. In 2015, we were awarded the project as part of a tender for renewable energy plants promoted by the South African government.

Impact on local communities

Our commitment to sustainability is proven: not just by building renewable energy plants, but also by fostering local socio-economic development through the creation of jobs and educational initiatives. Schools in the area have been provided with clean energy thanks to mini-photovoltaic systems. Scholarships have been awarded to local students and three teachers have been hired full-time to improve education in the field of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We also support school nutrition programs in the Kouga area.

Digital initiatives

During the construction phase of the wind farm, we used digital platforms, software, and innovative methods to monitor and support on-site activities. To control the quality of on-site operations we used devices like smart glasses, which allow instant feedback and suggestions related to health, safety, environmental, and quality control.
