Groundbreaking for Namibian solar plant



Cronimet Mining Power Solutions Namibia has broken ground on a 150 kWp PV plant in Chobe, Namibia. When completed, the plant will, in combination with an efficient energy storage system, supply Chobe Water Villas with clean energy at a competitive price. The property, which is owned and operated by O&L Leisure is currently off-grid and relies on gensets to meet its energy needs. The solar PV plant will be combined with an efficient and fully automated energy storage system that is controlled by Cronimet’s technical department in Germany. It will allow the lodge in the Kasika Conservacy in the Namibian Zambezi region to cover its full daytime electricity demand and to further reduce the reliance on gensets at night. To date, the company has completed, is constructing, has been awarded or has achieved pre-financial close on eleven African projects representing more than 36 MW of power, and has a development pipeline consisting more than 260 MW of utility scale, solar PV-diesel hybrid and rural mini-grid projects.
