Providing competitive, sustainable and reliable power solutions across Africa
Providing low cost, low-carbon, renewable energy solutions for mining and industrial companies across Africa
Working in partnership with Total Eren with a right to invest between up to 49% into the co-developed projects, we have a fast-growing pipeline of projects approaching 1 GW
- Inaugurated in 2018, the 15 MW Essakane solar PV project in Burkina Faso is one of the largest hybrid solar-thermal plants in the world; a project which won the 2019 TSM Excellence Award a year later
- The 40 MWp solar PV project will supply electricity to the South African PGM mine on a minimum 15-year PPA on ‘take-or-pay’ basis, contributing to the company’s goals to become carbon neutral in 2050
First Quantum Minerals
- This 430 MW project at FQM’s copper-gold mine is one of the most ambitious renewable energy projects in Africa, complementing and expanding Zambia’s existing renewable energy capacity, utilising both solar and wind resources
- Solar power will be provided to the newly constructed PGM mine in Zimbabwe at the initial installed capacity of 30 MW, part of a broader project of 300 MW to be developed over the mine’s evolution
