Manufacturer KACO new energy has begun supplying its inverters to large-scale solar projects in South Africa.
The company is supplying equipment for two projects in Northern Cape with a combined capacity of 33MW being constructed by AE-AMD Renewable Energy, a joint venture between Spanish AMDA energia and the South African Alt-E Technologies in partnership with Tenesol.
KACO will equip the two plants with 900 Powador 39.0 TL3 for a decentralized implementation of the two projects.
Christoph Heinermann, KACO new energy's regional director for South Africa said: “South Africa has a heavily increasing energy demand, driven by major economic growth. The current power suppliers are fortunately focusing in advance on regenerative sources of energy as the best way to meet this demand. Due to the high amount of sunshine and the available land areas, solar power plants are especially well suited to achieving this goal. That's where we come in with our expertise and proven products.”
