SolarWorld to develop solar plant on Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

Africa's most visited site, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, will be supplied with clean solar energy produced by 4.200 solar modules of German manufacturer SolarWorld.

Clean power generation and decentralized use of energy gain increasing importance in Africa, according to SolarWorld. This now also demonstrates the largest commercial and shopping center which is, with 25 million visitors, the most frequented place on the continent. Colin Devenish, Executive Manager of Operations of Victorial & Alfred Waterfront: "We want to set standards but this is also our responsibility for the environment."

Sustainable Power Solutions (SPS), a SolarWorld local partner, and SolarWorld have been selected through a tender process in June 2015 for the major project. The first photovoltaic systems have already been installed, and SolarWorld aims to develop a total of eight systems in 2016, which will be installed on the roofs of the Clock Tower, the Granger Bay, the Two Oceans Aquarium, the Portswood House and four other buildings. 

Dr.-Ing. E. H. Frank Asbeck, CEO of SolarWorld said, "It is an honor that SolarWorld and SPS have been selected for this project. In such projects, it comes down to quality and durability. Who wants to be on the safe side, SolarWorld must be your choice.”
