Independent energy company ENERTRAG South Africa, which acquired the iconic 5.2 MW Darling wind farm in mid-October, has confirmed that it intends studying the feasibility of expanding the Western Cape facility.
The wind farm was South Africa’s first-ever renewable-energy independent power producer (IPP) and its establishment has been attributed largely to the determined efforts of *Hermann Oelsner,* the pioneering first CEO of Darling Wind Power.

Darling Wind Power entered into commercial operation on May 1, 2008, and has power purchase agreements with the City of Cape Town and South African renewable-energy trader PowerX.
The project was initially built with funding support from the Danish government and the Development Bank of Southern Africa. However, Clean Energy Africa Investments purchased the power plant in 2016 and subsequently sold it to ENERTRAG for an undisclosed fee, following a bidding process.
