    Mainstream Renewable Power uses mobile transformer in South Africa 07/25/2017
    ...Mainstream Renewable Power uses mobile transformer in South Africa Since the permanent grid connection is not yet completed, Mainstream uses a mobile transformer for the Loeriesfontein wind farm in South Africa. This means that the wind power plants can already be taken into test set before the substation is finished. grid, Mainstream Renewable Power, South Africa, Wind farm The fact that in many places grid connection takes longer than construction of the wind farm is no secret. In order not to be too dependent on delays, the wind project developer Mainstream Renewable Power uses a mobile transformer for the construction of the Loeriesfontein wind farm in South Africa. This makes it possible for the wind power plants to be commissioned before the Helios substation is ready to secure a permanent grid connection. “We have worked very closely with Eskom to supply and operate the mobile transformer, which is typically used by the Utility to temporarily connect to substations during maintenance or unplanned shutdowns to allow continued use of substations.  Mobile transformers are not normally used to connect Wind Farms to the distribution system,” explained Kevin Foster, Country Construction Manager for Mainstream Renewable Power. Commissioning of the Helios tsubstation is planned for September 2017. Then the wind farm is finally connected to the grid after a test phase. ...

  • 2017 Middle East and Africa Wind Power Outlook 06/20/2017
    ... to the 682MW added in 2015. New capacity in South Africa and Morocco in 2016 represented more than 80% of new added capacity in MEA. In South Africa... 91.3%, or 3.8GW, was installed in Africa, led by South Africa, Morocco, and Egypt. Nearly 40GW of new wind power capacity will be added in the Middle East and Africa region from 2017 to 2026, with a compounded annual growth rate of 22%. The growth in wind is supported by tremendous wind resources as well as an increase in experience and best practices across the value chain, which will result in a gradual reduction in the LCOE of wind power (-15% from 2017 to 2022) across the region. The implementation of auctions in countries such as South Africa, Egypt, Morocco and U.A.E. has resulted in some of the cheapest bidding prices globally for both wind and solar projects. Competition between solar and wind power is increasing, but since both segments are immature and given the large resources spread across the region, both technologies will have time to develop in parallel. This dynamic may change over the long-term primarily due to LCOE gains of solar power Development of a local supply chain in North Africa, notably in Morocco and Egypt, is expected to support wind power development in the region by allowing for intra-regional exports. Moreover, despite its ongoing financial difficulties, Iran will contribute to growth in the medium term while Saudi Arabia, currently working on its first tenders, will assume a leadership position in the Middle East during the outlook period. The bulk of the smaller countries in MEA will also play a large role in the region’s development as incremental country-level growth in aggregate will add up. By the end of the outlook, wind power capacity will be added in more than 80% of the countries in the region although 70% of total new capacity will be added in only seven countries MAKE’s Middle East and Africa Wind Power Outlook is a 60+ page report containing 95+ charts, tables and graphs providing in-depth analysis of the wind power markets in Middle East and Africa. The report studies the key drivers and barriers for new wind power installations in the region with a focus on specific national and sub-regional markets. The analysis focuses on macro conditions, regulatory frameworks as well as 10-year market outlooks and three forecast scenarios (bull, base and bear) for South Africa. Market models are illustrated, demonstrating the critical forces that are shaping demand for new wind power generation assets. ...

  • Wind farms fund programme to improve Loeriesfontein learner’s literacy levels 05/19/2017
    ... farms in South Africa help funding programs to improve learner’s literacy levels Loeriesfontein wind farm and Khobab wind farm are funding a literacy... Africa, funding This ‘Learn–Ready Literacy Programme’ is being implemented in Loeriesfontein Primary School and TNJ van der Walt Primary School Grade 2 to Grade 5 as well as Grade 8 at Loeriesfontein High School. This educational programme is being implemented in partnerships with the National Department of Basic Education and the various provincial departments. The renewable energy projects are working with Spell-It South Africa, who has appointed two previously unemployed community members who have been chosen for their language and teaching aptitudes. They have completed in-depth training, which will continue, to ensure that they can provide assistance to both the Primary School and High School in the roll-out and execution of this programme over a three year period, all aimed at improving the literacy levels at respective schools. This programme is ideally focused on basic literacy in the foundation phase, in line with international research that has shown this to be a critical transition period, when learners move from the ‘learning to read’ phase into the ‘reading to learn’ phase. Learners who are literate at Grade 4 Level are 80% more likely to complete matric and be functionally literate for tertiary education and later employment. This programme, which has impacted over 350 000 primary school children since 2010, consists of three components, namely: The Vocabulary Assistance Programme (VAP); Teacher Training and Capacity Building; and Spelling Bee Competitions. The VAP is a step-by-step, fun series of card games, age-appropriate stories and interactive activities that assist learners to build on their existing knowledge while brushing up on the fundamentals of phonetics, spelling rules and word structure. The content is CAPS-aligned and gives educators exciting activities to do with their learners in the classroom, while covering the required content to get learners spelling at their Grade level. The wind farms views their investment in education as a powerful platform through which the lives of ordinary community members can be positively impacted over the long term, as quality education allows individuals to increased access to better socio-economic opportunities. ...

  • Q1/2017 Global Wind Power Market Outlook Update 03/14/2017
    ... such as South Africa, Egypt, and Morocco establish footing, an aggregation of capacity from emerging markets will boost annual growth. A CAGR of 22.2% from 2017 to 2026 is the highest of any sub-region globally in MAKE’s outlook. Annual growth in China dropped expectedly YoY following its record year in 2015, but the market still accounted for 37% of capacity added globally in 2016. The NEA issued warnings to six provinces in early 2017 due to sub-standard wind utilisation hours. The warnings accelerate a dynamic already underway, which is a development shift into Class IV regions and other regions with good wind resources and limited curtailment. Maturing know-how in China’s offshore sector, particularly in Jiangsu province, boosts the near-term outlook. Growth in India highlights the rest of Asia, as it is expected to add 36GW over the 10-year outlook. Developers in India will adjust successfully from the non-renewal of the GBI and reduction in half of the AD incentive, as low bids at the recent wind auction indicate the competitiveness of wind power in the market. State-level auctions may be introduced in Australia, which could bolster growth ahead of the 2020 national renewable energy target. MAKE expects a 10-year CAGR of 15% in Australia’s wind power market, with strong near-term demand leading up to 2020. Outside of the big three markets in Asia, annual onshore grid-connected capacity levels will increase as emerging markets (e.g., Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines) gain consistency. However, offshore development in several land-constrained markets will largely characterise market activity. South Korea will connect its first utility-scale offshore project to the grid in 2017, which is critical to establishing a track record and momentum as offshore is expected to account for 30% of the market’s growth over 10 years. Offshore development in Taiwan and Japan has not progressed as smoothly, as delays due in part to difficult site conditions, impact project economics and impede a faster pace of development. Firm order intake increased 8% YoY in Q4/2016 to more than 14GW, primarily due to a late surge in orders in the Americas. Combined with strong order intake in Asia Pacific excluding China, order intake in all of 2016 surpassed 51GW, a significant amount considering that order intake in China dropped YoY. A 2% increase YoY in order intake globally supports near-term growth expectations. The Q1/2017 Global Wind Power Market Outlook Update includes a detailed market forecast update for more than 50 key and emerging markets for wind power from 2017 to 2026. The forecast data includes a split of expected onshore and offshore development as well as an analysis of wind turbine order and wind turbine pricing trends. ...
