Sere Wind Facility (Eskom)The Sere Wind Facility will have an installed capacity of 100 MW and associated power evacuation infrastructure. The site layout, the site boundary reconfiguration and the hub height have been optimised through computational fluid dynamics modelling. The resultant Sere site capacity factor is at the 26% to 32% range at hub heights modelled between 80 to 100 meters. Environmental authorisation allows for hub heights of up to 120 meters, based on wind data measured at the Sere site and 40-year long-term atmospheric modelled wind resource data procured from three-tier analysis. Sere’s wind regime has been ranked Class III (moderate to low wind), based on 15 months
of wind measurements at 60 meters met mast and 5-year data correlation with a met mast 10 km away. Only wind turbine generators sized to the site conditions and grid specifications will be required. The unit installed capacity of the wind turbine generators is proposed to be between 1.5 MW and 3.0 MW.
