Name of the Project
Umsinde Emoyeni Wind Farm.

On the border between the Northern Cape and the Western Cape provinces, near Murraysburg, South Africa.

Project Owner/s
The project consortium is led by African Clean Energy Developments and Energy Infrastructure Management Services comprising African Infrastructure Investment Managers (AIIM) renewable-energy project development, delivery and asset management platforms. Reatile Renewables is also a shareholder in the consortium.

AIIM is a division of Old Mutual Alternative Investments, which, in turn, has invested in the project through its IDEAS Fund, one of South Africa’s biggest domestic infrastructure equity funds. 

Rand Merchant Bank, a division of FirstRand Bank, is the sole mandated lead arranger for the project with Sibanye-Stillwater.

Project Description
Sibanye-Stillwater concluded its fourth renewable-energy power purchase agreement (PPA), and reached financial close for an additional 140 MW wind energy project in May 2024.

The project will supply Sibanye-Stillwater’s South African operations using the national grid through a secured wheeling agreement with State-owned power utility Eskom.

This project, together with Sibanye-Stillwater’s previously announced PPAs, brings the total dedicated capacity of renewable-energy projects in construction exclusively for Sibanye-Stillwater to 407 MW. 

This renewables capacity will allow for a 1.45-million-tonne reduction in CO2 equivalent a year from 2027, and will significantly contribute to alleviating the South African electricity crisis.
