In 2000 the pioneers in our team started the development of wind power projects in our home region in the North of Belgium. In close cooperation with the local communities, we developed, built and today operate 14 wind turbines with a total rated power of 30 MW generating 65 GWh of wind power every year. A sixth wind farm with a rated power of 12 MW is being developed today.

Since the beginning we grew to a team of 14 people organised in 4 companies contributing to different stages of our wind power projects:

Hirundo Lesotho

Develops wind energy projects in Lesotho. The Basotho team has his base in Alwynskop, Quthing and develops the projects in cooperation with the stakeholders. The team is supported by the Belgium Hirundo Energy team.

Is the project team within Fortech Studie that engineers the wind energy projects in Africa, primarily Lesotho and Ghana. Hirundo Energy is an experienced and enthusiastic team of people with various competences in the field of wind energy projects. The quality of their work is guaranteed by their drive to contribute to a sustainanble energy system that counters climate change.
