Juwi Renewable Energies (Pty) Ltd, or Juwi South Africa, will take responsibility for the operational management of an 85-MW solar park in South Africa.
The company said on Wednesday it will be providing operation and maintenance (O&M) services to the De Aar 1 solar farm, which is located some 500 km north of the coastal city of Port Elizabeth and has been operating since 2014.
The addition of De Aar 1 to Juwi’s portfolio expands it to more than 500 MW of assets under operational management in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. The particular plant took part in Bid Window One of South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme (REI4P).
Juwi South Africa is part of Germany-based Juwi Group, which, in turn, is owned by Mannheim-based energy supplier MVV Energie AG.
