Subcontracted by the appointed contractor Power Construction, Kwikspace supplied the wind farm with 20 modular buildings. Designed for use as kitchen facilities, ablutions and office space, all units were anchored and supplied with window blinds, burglar bars and air conditioners.
There are 16 office units in total, five of them measuring 3 m X 12 m and 11 of them 3 m X 6 m. Of these, three of the 3 m X 6 m are for use by the developer, and all other office and facilities units are used by Power Construction.
In support of Government’s Renewable Energy IPP Procurement Programme (REIPPP), Kwikspace has increased its supply of mobile units to the renewable energy industry, particularly in the Eastern and Northern Cape, helping projects to get up and running quicker. Kwikspace has previously provided solutions at Kouga, Grassridge, Amakhala, Njoli and Gibson Bay wind farms.
Kwikspace was the first contractor on site when the project commenced. “We formed close relationships with local and international companies that are based on site for the project duration,” says Glen Moss, Eastern Cape Area Manager. “As a result, Kwikspace now has four additional onsite clients which, between them, require 20 more relocatable modular buildings. This brings the total number of units for the Nxuba Wind farm project to 40.”
The 18-month rental agreement runs from November 2018 to May 2020.
