Tenesol invests €1.5 million in South African factory


The company is said to be planning to hit 100 MW by next year.

The investment paid for 2’Tabber Stringer’ Machines, which are now said to be fully operational.

The news comes after Tenesol ramped up production at its Toulouse, France manufacturing facility, where it increased capacity to 170 MW.

The company also recently announced its partnership in Oryx, an Orange Solar Base Station programme: green energy is used rather than diesel generators to provide telecoms equipment to rural locations. The special photovoltaic panels for this programme – ‘Rural Communications’ – are produced by the comnpany’s Cape Town factory; to date, it has supplied around 900 Base Stations.
