GRI Renewable Industries
The renewable energy industry in South Africa is in process of transformation. Aware of this reality, GRI Renewable Industries opened its first wind tower manufacturing plant in Atlantis, Cape Town (South Africa), in November 5, 2014. The idea is to enhance clean and renewable energy in the country. GRI currently has 16 plants in 8 countries.
The goal of GRI Towers South Africa is to provide the market in South Africa with wind towers (it will supply more than 150 towers per year) thus contributing to the strong development of renewable energies in this country while we continue with our outsourcing model. In 2014 GRI decided to settle in Atlantis with the construction of a greenfield operation. GRI invested R310 million to establish its 5th tower manufacturing facility, capable of producing 100 towers annually to supply the local market. In 2015, GRI decided to increase the capacity up to 150 towers/year
Furthermore, this new plant contributes to the boost and growth of the Atlantis area after a 20 million euro investment and hiring more than 200 people.
