Eskom – 27 IPP projects

 

It was previously stated that Jeff Radebe  stressed that 27 new projects would stimulate 58 000 new jobs, mostly during construction and mostly in the rural areas of the Northern, Eastern and Western Cape provinces, as well as the North West, Free State and Mpumalanga provinces. There was potential to create a further 1 500 jobs in the manufacturing sector as a direct spin-off from the projects.  We have to see and wait what will happen in future.   B-BBEE is also supported – South Africans own 57.8%, or R11.9-billion, of the companies awarded projects during bid windows 3.5 and 4. Of that, black shareholders own 64.2%, or R7.64-billion.

The National Development Plan (NDP) identifies the need for South Africa to invest in a strong network of economic infrastructure designed to support the country’s medium- and long-term economic and social objectives. Energy infrastructure is a critical component that underpins economic activity and growth across the country; it needs to be robust and extensive enough to meet industrial, commercial and household needs.

The Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme (IPPPP) Office and mandate

The Department of Energy (DoE), National Treasury (NT) and the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) established the IPPPP Unit for the specific purpose of delivering on the IPP procurement objectives.

In November 2010 the DoE and NT entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the DBSA to provide the necessary support to implement the IPPPP and establish the IPPPP Office.

The activities of the office are in accordance with the capacity allocated to renewable energy and non-renewable generation in the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) 2010; subsequent ministerial determinations and DoE support service requirements.

The IPPPP Office provides the following services:

  • Professional advisory services;
  • Procurement management services;
  • Monitoring, evaluation and contract management services (as from 7 July 2014) – with contract period of 20 years.

It has been applauded for effectively avoiding the quicksand of laborious administrative arrangements, without undermining the quality or transparency of the programme.

The IPPPP partnership is funded by a Project Development Facility (PDF) financed through bid registration fees payable by all bidders and the Development Fee paid by selected bidders.

The NDP requires the development of 10,000 MWs additional electricity capacity to be established by 2025 against the 2013 baseline of 44,000 MWs.

The (policy adjusted) Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) 2010 developed the preferred energy mix with which to meet the electricity needs over a 20 year planning horizon to 2030.

In line with the national commitment to transition to a low carbon economy, 17,800 MW of the 2030 target are expected to be from renewable energy sources, with 5,000 MW to be operational by 2019 and a further 2,000 MW (i.e. combined 7,000 MW) operational by 2020.

Planning requirements further include capacity to supply for base load and medium term risk mitigation (MTRM) plans.

In May 2011, the Department of Energy (DoE) gazetted the Electricity Regulations on New Generation Capacity (New Generation Regulations) under the Electricity Regulation Act (ERA).

The ERA and Regulations enable the Minister of Energy (in consultation with NERSA) to determine what new capacity is required. Ministerial determinations give effect to components of the planning framework of the IRP, as they become relevant.

Twenty-four of the projects are either solar photovoltaic (PV) or onshore wind developments, but the list also includes the Redstone Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project, in the Northern Cape, the Kruisvallei mini-hydro project, in the Free State, and the Ngodwana Energy biomass project, to be fuelled using waste Sappi wood chips, in Mpumalanga.

The 12 solar PV projects are listed as Aggeneys, Bokamoso, De Wildt, Droogfontein 2, Dyason’s Klip 1, Dyason’s Klip 2, Greefspan 2, Konkoonsies 2, Loriesfontein Orange, Sirius 1, Waterloo and Zeerust.

The 12 wind projects were named as Copperton, Excelsior, Garob Wind Farm, Garob Valley, Kangnas, Oyster Bay, Perdekraal East, Roggeveld, Karusa, Nxuba, Soetwater and Wesley-Ciskei.

Toevallig? 
The case was heard in the High Court on March 27 and, on March 29, 2018 and the case was dismissed. Judge Dawie Fourie ruled that the application was not urgent and struck the case off the roll, with costs.  Agreements were later signed.    The 27 projects will amount to R55.92 billion ($5 billion) in new direct investment in the energy sector and create the much needed jobs for South Africans.   These projects will be located in different parts of the country mainly in rural areas.
Eskom – Radebe – 27 contracts

Motsepe ontken dat hy bevoordeel word deur die aankondiging van sy familielid in Parlement, Ramaphosa.      Dis net baie toevallig dat daar heelwat ooreenkomste bestaan, en dit het nie “oornag” ontstaan nie.   Volgens hom het hulle reeds bestaande kontrakte wat nie net gekanselleer kan word nie – hoe is tenders uitgegee is ‘n ander vraag.   Weet nie watter kontrakte dit alles is nie.   – AREP van sy vrou en Jeff Radebe speel ‘n kritieke rol hierdeur.   Regdeur is dit ooglopend.
Patrice Motsepe has rejected claims that he will benefit from his brother-in-law President Cyril Ramaphosa’s recent decision to unbundle Eskom.

Ramaphosa – Motsepe – Radebe … … … Jeff Radebe says signed 27 IPP agreements a ‘new dawn’ for renewables in South Africa
27 IPP agreements – Eskom – “new dawn”

It was previously stated that Jeff Radebe  stressed that 27 new projects would stimulate 58 000 new jobs, mostly during construction and mostly in the rural areas of the Northern, Eastern and Western Cape provinces, as well as the North West, Free State and Mpumalanga provinces. There was potential to create a further 1 500 jobs in the manufacturing sector as a direct spin-off from the projects.  We have to see and wait what will happen in future.   B-BBEE is also supported – South Africans own 57.8%, or R11.9-billion, of the companies awarded projects during bid windows 3.5 and 4. Of that, black shareholders own 64.2%, or R7.64-billion.

Eskom – 27 IPP projects

Problems at Eskom started actually years back – load sheddings is not a “new thing”.

Eskom – korrupsie – corruption

*

 All of them responsible for the appointment of board members, workers and “tender bribes” since 1994 must PAY BACK THE MONEY.    It is a fact:  Eskom has been failed and is still in the “capture” mode.   The “zuma capture mode – musical chairs”.   Nobody from the government or their agents today, has a desire for Eskom to work.   That means, it is a dictatorship in the making since 1980 – Communism – Bolshevism.
Eskom and B-BBEE/EE

Eskom officials have caught one of their own in the act:   An employee suspected of sabotage was arrested on 21 January 2020 for stealing 270m of copper cables.   If anybody steal electricity illegal it is also sabotage.   If you do not pay for your electricity, it is also sabotage.    What about Soweto and other places that steal electricity – this is also sabotage!!
Sabotage – ESKOM – Sabotasie
