Google has cancelled its plans to buy 12.5% stake in Africa’s largest wind farm because of delay in the project, Danish wind turbine maker Vestas said.
“Due to delays relating primarily to the transmission line, the Vestas agreement with Google was cancelled in 2019,” a Vestas spokesman told Reuters.
Vestas said that they are in talks with other potential buyers of the stake. Lake Turkana wind farm was set to be ready by 2017 and Google said it would buy the stake from Vestas. The tech giant cancelled the deal due to delays in the “transmission line”.
Lake Turkana Wind Power consists of 365 wind turbines that generate 850kW each.
