Vanguard to install turbines at Nojoli Wind Farm
Vanguard specialised transport and plant installation company has been awarded the transport and crane erection contract for the Nojoli Wind Farm near Cookhouse in the Eastern Cape.
The Nojoli project comprises 44 Vestas V100 2MW wind turbine generators, which have the capacity to generate more than 275GWh per year or enough for 86,000 South African households.
“In recent years we have transported and erected over 160 turbines at wind farms around South Africa,” said project and mechanical engineer, Robbie Boshoff.
The company’s contract commenced with discharging the vessel in December 2015 at the Port of Ngqura near Port Elizabeth, and storage at the port. “The team on this tight-deadline project had an early start to the year, arriving back to discharge a second vessel on 2 January 2016 with further vessels to be discharged throughout the project.”
