GEO-NET South Africa

Together with GEO-NET Ukraine, the GEO-NET branch in Cape Town is the newest of a total of four foreign branches. Via GEO-NET South Africa Pty Ltd. we offer our complete range of services from searching for suitable sites, designing and conducting wind measurement campaigns, to energy yield assessments and due diligence directly through our entity in South Africa, which facilitates the handling of orders, contracts, payments and project development.

 

South Africa offers excellent wind resources, sufficient space, a rapidly growing energy demand and an established wind industry. After a politically forced stop of the expansion, wind energy is picking up speed again under the current president, and numerous new projects are being developed.

 

GEO-NET already has many years of experience in South Africa with wind field simulations, wind measurements and energy yield assessments. Up to now most wind farms are located in windy coastal regions, but with modern turbine technology more and more projects are developed inland, where the terrain becomes more complex. Simple wind models fail at such locations. GEO-NET offers a CFD model which has proven to be very reliable especially in complex terrain: FITNAH-3D.

 

During the last years employees from Hannover were often travelling to South Africa for site visits, inspection and acceptance of met masts or contract negotiations. By founding a local company, orders can now be processed directly within South Africa. This saves time and facilitates the implementation of wind potential studies, wind measurement projects and energy yield assessments in South Africa.
