Wolf Wind Farm Celebrates 500 000 Lost Time Injury-free Hours

As construction moves forward at Wolf Wind Farm, excitement and expectation continue to mount with each update chronicling events at the Red Rocket site. The wind farm recently announced that it had achieved 500 000 Lost Time Injury (LTI)-free hours as of February 15, 2024, signifying an inspiring way forward for our 85MW project located in the Eastern Cape.

The project, which commenced construction in late February of 2023, has been on a steady trajectory to commercial operations, targeted for Q4 of 2024, affirming our journey towards safety excellence. Lost Time Injuries (LTIs) occur when workers are involved in safety-related incidents and are unable to return to work for their next scheduled shift.

This latest milestone marks 12 full months in construction without an LTI.

“Each hour without a lost-time injury signifies not just statistical progress, but tangible evidence of our dedication to ensuring the well-being of every member of our team. It underscores the effectiveness of our safety protocols, the discipline in adhering to them, and the culture of safety that permeates every aspect of our operations,” said our Health and Safety Manager, James Geeringh, and our Project Engineer on Wolf Wind Farm, Johan Kroes, jointly.

At Red Rocket, we pride ourselves on creating an environment on our sites where safety is a top priority, actively promoting a culture of awareness and well-being on each of our sites. “However, as we acknowledge this milestone, we must also remain vigilant. Complacency is the enemy of safety, and our success depends on maintaining the same level of diligence and attention to detail that brought us to this point.”

“Safety is not just a goal to be achieved; it’s a continuous journey that requires ongoing commitment from each and every one of us.”

Meanwhile, the first five sets of the V162 turbine components for Wolf Wind Farm (blades, nacelles, and hubs) recently arrived at Port of Coega in Gqeberha, representing a huge step forward for the project on its way to completion.
