The 50 MW Bokpoort CSP plant, built by Acciona, has been named “Best renewable energy project 2016” by the South african National Energy Association.
Trade Ministers from South africa and Saudi Arabia have jointly inaugurated the Bokpoort Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Project in South africa’s Northern Cape.
King Mohammed VI of Morocco is poised to open the first phase of what will eventually be the largest CSP plant in the world – the same size as Morocco’s capital city Rabat.
Global Concentrated Photovoltaic installed capacity will increase from 282.5 ME in 2014 to 1.3 GW by 2020, with a big help from South africa and China, a new report says.
Acciona has formed a consortium with engineering and construction specialist Sener to build a €500 million solar thermal plant in South africa.
