DCD Wind Towers will produce complete tubular steel towers for Wind Turbines. The wind turbine towers will vary in sizes ranging between 80 and 120 meters, with individual sections weighing between 40 to 60 tons. DCD Wind Towers is establishing a factory that will be internationally competitive in terms of production, quality and pricing.
The DCD Wind Towers business is an expansion on DCD's core power generation capabilities. Power generation is a major focus point for the DCD Group, which manufactured components to all 22 of South Africa's power stations between the 1960s and the 1990s. DCD is also currently involved at Medupi, Kusile and Ngula power stations, and places a strong emphasis on being a player in coal, gas, nuclear and renewable energy in South Africa
As a first in the country, DCD manufactured a 80m tower, 50m rotor blades and assembled the nacelle for a turbine under license from Aerodyne, a leading German engineering company.
DCD has been an integral participant in South Africa's infrastructure development for decades and is now playing an active role as a partner of choice to government in the current infrastructure expansion drive.
DCD intends to continue partnering with government to ensure that local manufacturers have the opportunity to participate in assembling turbines and manufacture other components.
