At the forefront of sustainable technology

Green energy is a major global concern and a driver of governments today. With wind energy as the world’s fastest-growing energy resource, CONCO’s green legacy began with the building of the first grid-connected wind farms in the Southern Hemisphere: in Crookwell, Australia, and Darling, South Africa.

A key area of expertise

Collaboration. Relationships. Innovation.

CONCO works with clients to develop innovative and cost-effective wind farm solutions, constructing windfarms and project-managing the entire process including all civil works, road works, MV infrastructure, communication systems, substations and overhead lines. Specifically, our ongoing relationship with the local utility, Eskom, and our knowledge of the South African network, position us as the industry leader – supported by a specialist team of windfarm design engineers.

CONCO substations: custom-designed, constructed and installed

Our specialised engineers design, procure, construct and commission conventional outdoor substations, indoor cellular substations, gas-insulated substations and 22kV-132kV mobile substation skids for open-cast mining. Our design engineers are assisted in providing such solutions by our in-depth proficiency when it comes to utilising the latest technologies, including hybrid switchgear technology.


Flawless implementation of power lines, whatever the length or logistics

One of our most exciting projects, a double circuit 275kV power line through a remote jungle in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was carried out like all other CONCO contracts: with the highest quality, safety and environmental standards, on time and to budget.


CONCO Protection and Automation – the benchmark in engineering standards

To this end, we have an in-house design office with the latest design software, our own design engineers and documentation control processes, dedicated CONCO commissioning engineers and advanced test equipment for factory acceptance testing and site acceptance testing.


CONCO’s seamless primary engineering design

CONCO delivers across the spectrum; customising each project and applying freedom of design within the strictures of the IEC and SANS. Our comparative advantage is our ability to refurbish existing brown fields yards, by making equipment fit without compromise. Going beyond the parameters of ordinary design. Where design freedom meets engineering science.
