Name of the Project
Ummbila Emoyeni wind energy facility.

Location
Mpumalanga, South Africa.

Project Owner/s
Coal producer Seriti Resources and its renewable-energy subsidiary Seriti Green.

Project Description
Ummbila Emoyeni has been designated as a Strategic Integrated Project by the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure. The wind farm will be the first renewable-energy project to be developed in Mpumalanga.

The initial 155 MW wind energy facility is the first phase of a larger, almost 900 MW, renewable-energy cluster, which comprises 750 MW of wind energy facilities and 150 MW of solar photovoltaic plants.

Once built, the wind farm will result in more than 75% of the energy consumption from Seriti’s existing operations switching from coal to renewable energy, helping to mitigate its Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse-gas emissions.

Potential Job Creation
Not stated.

Capital Expenditure
R4-billion.

Planned Start/End Date
The project is expected to come on line in 2025.

Latest Developments
Seriti Green has signed a long-term project financing agreement with Rand Merchant Bank and Standard Bank as co-mandated lead arrangers to enable the delivery of the wind farm.

Key Contracts, Suppliers and Consultants
None stated.
