Support the implementation of the first wind farm in Sudan in Dongola which will align the wind farm with international best practices. It will also create a case study for replication in later wind farms. The Dongola wind farm will be implemented in five phases over the lifetime of the UNDP-implemented, GEF-financed project. The plan is that lessons learned in the first phase to be applied in subsequent phases and it will provide five years of continuous wind farm construction-commissioning-operation that will serve as a laboratory for training personnel and developing associated tools and guidelines. The opportunity to have such continuous exposure is very rare and will assist in transferring knowledge and experience to neighboring countries.
A remarkable milestone was recently achieved by the Dongola Wind Pilot Project. In
