Tom Dyffort, Managing Director at turbine blade specialist and repair business Altitec South Africa, said:
"In addition to finalising the REIPP projects, we particularly welcome Minister Radebe's commitment to partnering with the private sector to further South African renewables. Initiatives that allow local South Africans to acquire the skills needed to enter the wind industry will be essential to driving indigenous job creation as the sector grows.
"With the South African wind market expected to see significant medium- to long-term growth in its installed capacity, we're proud to be supporting it by providing technical training to the next generation of South African turbine rotor blade repair technicians."
