ENGIE has started commercial operations of its 100MW Kathu Solar Park (KSP) to “provide clean and reliable energy to 179,000 homes” in South Africa.

KSP is a greenfield concentrated solar power project with “parabolic trough technology” and equipped with “a molten salt storage system that allows for 4.5 hours of thermal energy storage”.

The project has been realised under round 3.5 of South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement (REIPPP) programme, a competitive tender process launched “to facilitate private sector investment in renewable energy generation”.

Mon, 12/10/2018 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

The African Development Bank (ADB) has approved a ZAR 3 billion (US$220 million) loan to help realise South Africa’s Redstone Concentrated Solar Power Project.

Located in Humansrus Solar Park in the Northern Cape Province, the 100MW Redstone Solar Power Project is expected to generate 466GWh of energy a year, thereby improving South Africa’s power supply, and assisting the country in its transition away from coal power, which currently makes up 82% of its energy mix.
