ARTsolar scores REIPPP contract
29 January 2014, News

KZN-based photovoltaic (PV) module maker ARTsolar has been awarded a contract for the supply of PV modules in the government’s R100 billion Round 2 of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPP).

“This contract – which is the first in the REIPPP to be awarded to a majority South African owned (PV) module manufacturer – is an exciting development for ARTsolar,” says Mark Walsh, managing director of ARTsolar. “These PV modules, which are being assembled at the ARTsolar plant in KwaZulu-Natal, form part of the 417,1 MW PV component of Round 2 of the REIPPP.

“In keeping with the REIPPP, where the creation of job opportunities, local content and community development remain essential ingredients of the programme, important considerations at ARTsolar are maximising local content of the modules, black economic empowerment, community employment, environmental protection and the manufacture of quality products in South Africa.”

ARTsolar has teamed up for this project with Astronergy, a large-scale producer of PV modules in mainland China that supplies modules and equipment all over the world.
