Amakhala Emoyeni Grid Connected 138.6 MW Wind Farm, Phase 1, South Africa
Sector: Renewable energy
Project type: Wind power
The project envisages the construction and operation of a wind farm with installed capacity of 138.6 MW. The wind farm will be comprised of 66 wind turbines with the capacity of 2.1 MW each and the associated infrastructure. Produced electricity will be supplied to the Eskom electricity network. The reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as a result of the project implementation will be achieved due to reduction of CO2 emissions from combustion of fossil fuel at the existing grid-connected power plants and plants which would likely be built in the absence of the project activity.
The crediting period of the project is 01/10/2016 – 30/09/2026.
Total estimated GHG emission reduction over the 10-year crediting period is 3 706 560 tCO2e.
