Scatec Solar was awarded the 75 MW Kalkbult project in December 2011.
The Kalkbult site is the largest project awarded in the 1st bidding round in South Africa, accounting for 12% of overall volume. Scatec Solar initiated the development, partnering with Simacel a local project developing company.
The 75 MW power plant was completed in record time (January 2013 – September 2013) and was grid connected three months earlier than planned. Scatec Solar took the leading role for all EPC activities and managed the construction phase.
Operation and maintenance
Scatec Solar takes full responsibilities for all O&M services: monitor the plant, take corrective and preventive maintenance measures, reporting to utility and owners.
