Wind farm building expertise

Concor Infrastructure has established an impressive reference base for the successful construction of wind farms across South Africa. For the Golden Valley Wind Farm situated near Bedford in the Eastern Cape, Concor Infrastructure was responsible for 43 kilometres of access roads, the bases for 48 wind turbines and their adjoining hard stands. It managed to successfully complete the project despite a six month delay at its start, labour and resource challenges as well as challenging geological conditions. Construction World visited the wind farm and spoke to Concor Infrastructure’s Project Manager, Steven Verwey
