10 April 2012 – Newly launched energy company, Cennergi has acquired development rights to a wind farm project from Windlab Developments South Africa.

The project, near the town of Bedford in the Eastern Cape, has the potential to form part of a major wind energy centre, with an excellent wind resource and proximity to infrastructure such as roads and the national electricity grid.

Cennergi CEO, Thomas Garner says, “The acquisition adds great value to Cennergi’s expanding portfolio of renewable projects. Cennergi is pleased to be developing this exciting project with Windlab, which brings to the table world-class wind resource assessment and a strong track record of developing high quality wind projects.”

"Windlab sees wind energy not just as a leading energy source, but also as a means to address South Africa’s unique economic, environmental and social challenges," says Windlab regional director, Peter Venn.
