PROPOSED AGREEMENT WITH GERMAN DEVELOPMENT BANK KfW

 

Notice is hereby given in terms of Section 33 of the Local Government Municipal Finance Management Act, No. 56 of 2003 that the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM) intends entering into an agreement with the German development bank KfW.

 

During the Government negotiations between the Republic of South Africa (RSA) and the Federal Republic of Germany in November 2018, Germany committed grant funding in the amount of EUR 18 million (ZAR 288 million) (the Grant) for the Financial Co-operation Programme "Renewable Energy for South African Municipalities – Phase I: Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Area”.

 

The Electricity and Energy Directorate of the NMBM will be responsible for preparing, implementing and maintaining the different project packages financed by the Grant. The estimated project time frame is four years.  The estimated total Project cost is approximately EUR 20 million. The NMBM will co-finance at least 10% of the total Project cost (i.e. EUR 2 million) over the duration of the Project.

 

The proposed Project supports the NMBM in the modernisation of the urban network infrastructure and in piloting an innovative Renewable Energy (RE) component. After extensive investigation, the oldest parts of the network were considered for strengthening, as these would be most beneficial to the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Area, resulting in the greatest RE opportunities for the funding. These projects include the Mount Road 132 kV substation, the Diaz Road 6.6 kV network and the 5th Avenue 6.6 kV network.

 

Further to these projects is to implement RE initiatives, as alternative supply to formerly disadvantaged parts of the City. Approximately 10% of the project value has been assigned to achieve this objective. It has been agreed between the NMBM and KfW that the pilot projects will look at green and replicable approaches only and that the close involvement  of the communities will be garnered and ensured.

 

Detailed project plans will be further elaborated during the design phase, with the support of the implementation consultant to be appointed.
