Concentrix Solar expands into South Africa; is looking to develop utility-scale solar


This, says the company, is the initial step in developing large-scale solar power projects in the country. It adds that it is “actively pursuing” a project development of a 50 megawatts (MW) utility-scale power plant in the Western Cape. ??

The company says that with the 60 kilowatts (kW) facility at the Aquila Private Game Reserve in Touwsrivier, Western Cape will cover all energy requirements during daylight hours and will help to make a positive contribution to environmentally friendly tourism. “CPV systems are perfectly suited for the use in South Africa with its energy shortage, water scarcity and high temperatures,” said Hansjörg Lerchenmüller, CEO of Concentrix Solar. “In addition, this facility will initiate the transfer of know-how and serves to develop local skills in South Africa with immediate effect.”?? ?
