Genesis Eco-Energy

Project

GenesisHexicon is a joint venture between Hexicon AB and Genesis Eco-Energy. Genesis Eco-Energy has been a pioneer in the development of renewable energy in South Africa for over two decades.

 

South Africa has a strong growing demand for clean and stable electricity production which is why offshore wind is of great interest to the country. The area for which the Gagasi project is planned is called Richards Bay and is with its deep waters and strong winds optimal for floating offshore wind. Fully developed, the park, which has a planned capacity of 800 MW, will be able to deliver electricity to thousands of households and companies in the area.

 

The Gagasi Floating Offshore Wind Farm is planned to be developed off of the east coast of South Africa where waters are deep, and winds are strong and stable. The project was initiated in 2022 by the joint venture GenesisHexicon.

Milestones

The latest milestone in the project is the start of the EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) which was initialized in 2022. Offshore environmental surveys are currently underway and it is expected that the permit application will be submitted in 2024.
