West Coast One helps to power South Africa

first_img10 June 2015West Coast One has reached commercial operation.The 94 megawatt (MW) wind project located 130km north of Cape Town is owned by Engie, together with partners Investec and Kagiso Tiso Holdings.The consortium was selected as preferred bidder for this project in May 2012 and signed a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Eskom, the electricity parastatal, in May 2013. Construction of the wind farm, which consists of 47 turbines of 2MW turbines, started in mid-2013.Gerard Mestrallet, the chairman and chief executive of Engie, said: “South Africa is an important market for Engie and we are a committed long-term investor in the African continent.“The West Coast One wind farm supports South Africa’s objective of increasing renewable generation and promoting local economic development. This project demonstrates Engie’s ability to deliver important renewable projects and underlines our commitment to developing sustainable sources of energy.”Investment in the wind farm was €160-million (R2.2-billion), funded by a mix of equity and debt, which has been provided by local banks. West Coast One will offset an estimated 5.6 million tons of carbon dioxide over the 20-year duration of its PPA.This project follows the start of operation of the 300MW Tarfaya wind farm in Morocco in 2014, Africa’s largest wind power project. It is owned by Engie in partnership with Nareva Holding.South Africa is implementing a 20-year plan that makes provision for 42% – 17gigawatts (GW) – of new generation to come from renewable energy, with 8GW allocated to onshore wind. The successful Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) is in place, with a number of projects already closed.In addition to West Coast One, Engie is actively developing further projects in South Africa. In 2013, the group signed PPAs for two greenfield open-cycle gas turbine power plants of 335MW (Dedisa) and 670MW (Avon), which are located in Eastern Cape and in KwaZulu-Natal, respectively. This year, an Engie-led consortium with South African partners, was nominated as preferred bidder for the 100MW Kathu Solar Park in Northern Cape.Engie currently has 19GW of renewable generation capacity in operation worldwide, of which more than 4GW is wind. It holds a 43% equity interest in West Coast One, while Investec owns 34.5% and Kagiso Tiso Holdings has a 20% interest. The remaining 2.5% will be allocated to a community trust, with the purpose of developing and sustaining the surrounding community.Engie, which is based in Paris, develops its businesses (power, natural gas, energy services) around a model based on responsible growth to take on the major challenges of energy’s transition to a low-carbon economy. It has expertise in four key sectors: renewable energy, energy efficiency, liquefied natural gas and digital technology.Source: Engielast_img read more

Wet weather (and even a tornado) Between the Rows

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Zach Profit, Van Wert Co.Since last Monday we’ve had 7.5 inches of rain. Every day since then we have gotten a pretty good shot of rain and there is a 50% chance tomorrow and an 80% chance on Wednesday. We got hammered pretty good and then there was an EF0 tornado that went through about a quarter mile east of our farm. It almost wiped out a new house that I bought.I bought the house at 3 on Friday and signed the paperwork and at 6:55 that night a tornado went through the north side of the lot. It threw a branch at one side of the house but it didn’t really hurt much. There were a bunch of limbs down but it messed up some corn. The corn was flat. There was green snap but since we’d had all that rain, the wind just pushed most of the plants over.The corn has goosenecked and stood back up and it is looking better. Our neighbors took it a little harder than we did. Their corn was maybe shoulder high and after that it was maybe two feet tall. We had 5 or 6 acres of damage and maybe total there were 55 or 60 acres that got wind damage. I think there will be corn there but it may be kind of a bugger to combine this fall.An EF0 tornado cause damage in a small area, including the newly purchased Profit home with the red buildings.The National Weather Service was at my new house all day Saturday. Just two or three miles away it was barely windy enough to move the leaves. We didn’t have a tornado warning or severe storm warning or anything. It looked like it tap danced in our field. It moved northwest and most tornados move to the northeast. The whole low-pressure system we had last week was counter clockwise rotation. It was wild. We were lucky.In the wetter areas the beans are a little yellow. I think they will bounce back pretty quickly. Last week we were one more big rain away from having a mess and we never got that next big rain. The ditch banks never came out but they were full to the brim. If we’d have caught one more big rain the ditches would’ve been out and we’d still be getting rid of the water. Most of the surface water is gone and most of the outlets are running about half full.Wheat around here is standing good. There could be some disease pressure. We are wet right now, too wet to get a combine out there. If we don’t get more rain they could maybe get out there late this week.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.last_img read more

Students across NE support ‘bandh’ against Citizenship Amendment Bill

first_imgSeveral students’ bodies of the north-eastern region have decided to observe a “bandh” on Tuesday in support of the call given by an influential students’ union to protest the proposed Citizens Amendment Bill, 2016. The Mizo Zirlai Pawal (MZP), the All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU), the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and the All Assam Students Union (AASU) have extended their support to the 11-hour “bandh” called by the North East Students’ Organisation (NESO).The “bandh” has also been called to condemn Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent statement that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 would be passed in Parliament soon, a NESO leader said. “Despite staging various dharnas even in New Delhi by students’ bodies from the north-east, the Centre is continues to be particular about passing the controversial bill, undermining the sentiments of the indigenous people of the region,” NESO coordinator Pritambai Sonam told reporters at Itanagar on Sunday.Mr. Modi had said at a rally near Silchar in Assam’s Barak Valley on Friday that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 would soon be passed in Parliament as a “penance against the injustice and many wrongs done in the past.” MZP general secretary Lalnunmawia Pautu said the 11-hour bandh would begin from 5 a.m. in Aizawl on Tuesday.He added that the people of the north-east were against the proposed amendment as it would grant citizenship to people on religious grounds. In Mizoram, it would mean legalising thousands of Buddhist Chakmas who had illegally entered the state from Bangladesh, Pautu said.The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 was introduced in the Lok Sabha to amend the Citizenship Act, 1955 to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians, who fled religious persecution in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan and entered India before December 31, 2014.Demanding immediate scrapping of the bill, AAPSU president Hawa Bagang said, “If the bill is passed, we will be left with no option but to take up arms to protect our indigenous population.” The NSF, in a press release, said as a constituent of the NESO, it had apprised the Centre of the detrimental effects of the bill, if it was passed in Parliament.Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharyya, the chief advisor of the NESO and AASU, had told a press conference in Guwahati on Saturday that the “bandh” was called by the two organisations, along with 30 allied ethnic organisations in Assam, to oppose the bill and condemn the prime minister’s statement.last_img read more
