WBHO Civils’ maiden contract in the Wind Tower domain for the manufacturing of pre-cast concrete elements for 80 no. 100m high pre-cast concrete towers. The first supply contract consisted of the production of 1 360 key stones, each 20 meters long and 6 meters wide with a maximum weight of 64 tons. The construction of the 5ha-precast facility commenced on 01 August 2019 and the facility was completed on 12 December 2019. The production commenced on 07 January 2020 and despite major challenges experienced such as a 12-week closure of the factory due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the first supply contract was successfully completed in January 2021. This project also show-cased the successful collaboration between WBHO and the communities it interacts with; a mature understanding has been established with the Siyathemba municipality for the future use of this world-class facility, which will see both parties benefit from the use thereof.
