Globeleq is the majority partner in the Ikamva Consortium and has been selected to contribute more wind projects across the country.

The six wind projects will total 824 MW of generation capacity adding to Globeleq’s two operational wind assets (Jeffreys Bay (138 MW) and Klipheuwal (27 MW).  Globeleq and its partners in the Ikamva Consortium were named by South Africa’s Department of Minerals, Resources and Energy (DMRE) as Preferred Bidder for 12 (6 wind and 6 solar) of the 25 projects chosen in South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) 5th bidding round.

Alongside of Globeleq, the Ikamva Consortium includes Mainstream Renewable Power, Africa Rainbow Energy & Power (AREP) and H1 Holdings and comprises more than 45 % of black ownership. The DMRE indicated that all 25 projects will inject a total of around R50 billion into the economy through private sector investment and will create more than 13,000 job opportunities.

The projects awarded include three wind projects in the Northern Cape: two wind projects in the Western Cape and the first wind project in the KwaZulu-Natal province.

Job opportunities during development and construction will be focused on supporting local communities once the plants come online.  Globeleq South Africa’s existing team of 82 permanent staff is expected to increase by an additional 50 positions.
