Juwi Renewable Energies (Pty) Ltd to build 89MW solar plant in South Africa

Project marks Juwi's biggest single solar installation.

The Mulilo Sonnedix Prieska PV solar park in the Northern Cape Province/South Africa will be built for Sonnedix, an independent power producer. When completed, the PV power plant will have a total generation capacity of 86 MW. For the juwi group, the utility-scale project in the Northern Cape is the company’s largest single solar EPC-project in the world.

“We are proud to realize this milestone project and delighted to, once again, be playing a key role in adding substantial amounts of clean energy to the South African electricity grid”, said Greg Austin, juwi South Africa’s managing director.

The Prieska project was selected by the Department of Energy of South Africa under the third bidding window of the national Renewable Energy Procurement Programme in October 2013. Of all six projects in bidding round three, the Mulilo Sonnedix Prieska PV solar park had the highest economic development score. Over the past few years, juwi Renewable Energies has realized four utility-scale PV projects in South Africa.

The commencement of construction is scheduled for the first quarter of 2015. Juwi will also provide operation and maintenance services for the plant.
