Design of Onshore Wind Turbine Foundations

Estimated cost: R5001 – R10 000
Field Of Study: Structural Engineering
Department Name: Civil Engineering

Objectives:

South Africa's Minister of Energy, Jeff Radebe, recently signed 27 Independent Power Producer (IPP) agreements for the next round of renewable energy projects in the
country with a combined capacity of 2300 MW. The National Development Plan (NDP) aims to increase the installed capacity of renewable energy to 20 000 MW by 2030.
To achieve this increase in installed capacity, it will require the construction of thousands of wind turbine foundations, even after taking the contribution of solar and other
forms of renewable energy into account.
