Cape Verde

Cape Verde

ATLANTIC DELAY

The installation of a 120 kW Nordtank turbine on the Cape Verde island of Brava has been postponed until August due to delays in completion of the necessary infrastructure on the island, according to the project's German backer. Three kilometres of cable have yet to be laid, an access road completed, as well as preparations for the foundation and transformer house made. Once in operation the turbine will provide 30% of the island's power supply reducing dependence on diesel imports. The project has been organised under the auspices of the German Agency for Technical Co-operation (GTZ). Three other wind stations, also made up of Danish Nordtank machines, are already operating on other Cape Verde islands in projects organised by the Danish development agency, Danida.
