Sonnedix competed in the South African Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPP) and became a preferred bidder for the 86 megawatt (MW) project. The Project co-developer is the South African company Mulilo. Financial Close is targeted to be reached by July 2014, with construction work starting shortly thereafter. Commercial operation is planned for the second half of 2015. The Mulilo Sonnedix Prieska PV solar park is juwi’s largest single solar EPC project in the world, so far. “We are looking forward to supporting our partners from Sonnedix to achieve a successful project”, says Jochen Magerfleisch, COO of the juwi group.
Franck Constant, President of Sonnedix Solar: “We are happy to be working with juwi, one of the world’s most experienced EPC providers in the field of renewable energies to build our solar park. We feel confident that our project construction shall be in very good hands”, Constant continues.
