The project is expected to help in reducing the consumption of diesel by ensuring a stable electricity supply.
Siemens Gamesa onshore sales and marketing managing director Warren Wilson said: “The plant is a great example of Siemens Gamesa ’s capabilities to offer energy solutions to areas with difficult access to an electricity grid.
“This plant will help the region to cut its diesel use and emissions while using storage facilities to assure that people have access to clean energy when they need it. Hybrid solutions such as these, reduce the intermittency of renewable energy, and as such provide huge growth potential.”
The plant is expected to become operational in the second half of this year.
Currently, discussions are on to build an additional 10MW wind farm facility. This is subject to necessary approvals from the Department of Energy (DoE) and other government agencies.
