Chinese wind turbine maker Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology (HKG:2208) today announced the full commissioning of all turbines at the 32.5-MW Excelsior wind park in South Africa.

The Excelsior project in Western Cape was one of the winners in the fourth bid round of South Africa’s Renewable Energy IPP Procurement (REIPPP) programme. The company won a contract to equip and build the wind farm back in 2015. It erected 13 units of 2.5-MW PMDD wind turbines near Swellendam.

In 2015, Goldwind also won a contract for the 120-MW Golden Valley wind project. It said today its construction is progressing “smoothly”, with grid connection planned for February 2021.

The contracts for both projects came from South African independent power producer (IPP) BioTherm Energy.
