  • Apollo Africa and Enertrag have partnered for the development and retail of wind-based renewable power from the 210 MW Hendrina wind power project.

Situated approximately 20km from the Hendrina coal-fired power station in Mpumalanga with grid allocation awarded, this project is scheduled to commence construction this December 2024 and reach full operations by November 2026.

“This marks a significant milestone for Apollo as we lead the market in providing the earliest wind supply to the retail market. The strategic advantages of wind energy are paramount in today’s evolving energy landscape. With 24/7 green energy production, it fills in the gaps around decreasing baseload of coal-fired generation and the burgeoning deployment of embedded solar, offering synergistic opportunities for blending solar and wind power. Additionally, this development strengthens the value of the Reunert Renewables Cluster. Alongside Terra Firma and Blue Nova, our cluster now delivers comprehensive energy solutions covering wheeled renewables, embedded solar and storage to our customers,” said Jenna Harris, CEO and founder of Apollo Africa.
