“We are proud to have reached this milestone in the procurement process – and are excited to continue delivering clean and reliable energy in South Africa. The South African government has shown strong commitment to deliver in challenging times – and today’s achievement is a testament to the hard work and dedication of actors in the country’s renewable energy transition. Scatec continues to drive action and remains the leading solar IPP in the country and continent. We look forward to completing the necessary deliverables in the new year.” says Scatec Executive Vice President for Sub-Saharan Africa, Jan Fourie.

Commercial and financial close is expected in the first half of 2023 and when operational, the combined facilities will power approximately 33,000 households, and lead to the abatement of 630,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.
