Scatec Solar Projects in South Africa

Scatec Solar has undertaken three solar PV projects in South Africa.

The projects are situated in the semi-arid Karoo region covering South Africa’s central interior, which has among the world’s highest solar irradiance levels. The 75MW Kalkbult plant is based on solar panels mounted at a fixed angle to the sun, and the 75MW Dreunberg and 40MW Linde plants have been constructed with horizontal single axis solar tracker systems, enabling them to track the sun and optimize electricity generation. This allows them to generate about 20% more electricity.
