R300m Atlantis wind-turbine tower factory offers light at the end of the tunnel

With South Africa currently in the grip of debilitating rolling black-outs and load shedding due to the Eskom power grid being stretched to capacity, and exacerbated by a loss of capacity at its Majuba power station in Mpumalanga, it comes as a ray of light that GRI - Renewable Industries officially announced the opening of their new R300m wind turbine tower production facility in Atlantis, Cape Town.


City’s incentive plan for Atlantis kicks off with wind tower factory

GRI Wind Steel South Africa’s factory will have a manufacturing capacity of 150 three-section wind towers per year. Tower sections of up to 90 tons, 38 meters in length and five metres in diameter, can be accommodated in the new facility. Completed tower section storage will also be available on the site, with permanently installed logistic machinery to move and load the sections.
