Swiss ABB Group Wins Bid To Supply Technology For Two South African Solar Power Plants

The ABB Group, a global power and automation technology provider, based in Switzerland, has won a $225 million bid to supply development services including: design, technologies, hardware, engineering, installation, and commissioning to build two solar power plants in South Africa. The bids were awarded by Core Energy and Erika Energy.

The two solar power plants will be built in South Africa’s northern province of Limpopo, near the province’s capital city of Polokwane. They will be built at the Witkop and Soutpan Solar Parks, and respectively have a generating capacity of 33 MW and 31 MW.

The power generated from these plants will be fed into a high-voltage transmission grid through a new equally high-voltage substation.

ABB says that together, “the plants will generate 130 gigawatt hours of electricity per year, enough clean energy to power around 36,000 South African homes and displace around 130,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions a year.”
