The proposed Ngxwabangu WEF will consist of up to 36 turbines, with a total facility output of up to 260MW. The WEF will also include up to four (4) 33kV medium voltage internal collector substations (SS), two (2) 33kV medium voltage underground powerlines, a 33 kV medium voltage Overhead Line (OHL) of approximately 12km to connect the northern section to the southern section of the site, an IPP SS (two alternatives) which will include a 33kV/132kV Switching Station area in order to connect the WEF to the existing Eskom Substation via a 132kV OHL (two alternatives). The WEF will also include a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) (two alternatives), temporary and permanent laydown areas, a Concrete Tower Manufacturing Facility (CTMF), a Construction Compound (CC), and access roads. The construction footprint of the proposed WEF will be up to 142ha (inclusive of roads), rehabilitated to an operational footprint of up to 95ha (inclusive of roads, inclusive of existing roads).
