APS have a joint development agreement with Biotherm Energy to co-develop four solar PV projects for submission to the Department of Energy’s Renewable Energy Programme. These projects are independently owned and operated are licensed by the DoE and Eskom under a set of agreements to produce energy for national consumption. Two of these projects were submitted into the first round of bidding in November 2011, and later became successful in being awarded licenses. These projects are now fully operational. A third 75MW project, Konkoonsies II, was awarded preferred bidder status in Round 4. Aurora has successfully developed further projects, the Adams Solar 75MW project that was awarded preferred bidder status in Round 3 and the Sirius 75MW PV project awarded in Round 4. Thus far we have successfully been awarded 245MW of solar PV projects in the REIPPP.

Konkoonsies Solar Energy Facility

The Konkoonsies 10MW Solar Project is located near Pofadder in the Northern Cape Province. This project was conceived by APS from inception and we retain a minority shareholding and a seat on the board of the project company.

The project will provide 20 million kWhs of clean energy per year and create 12 permanent jobs. The project is also supporting a number of socio-economic development initiatives and contains a BEE shareholding of 30%. A second phase of 75MW was recently awarded in Round 4.

Aries Solar Energy Facility

The Aries 10MW Solar Project is located near Kenhardt in the Northern Cape Province. This project was conceived by APS from inception and we retain a minority shareholding and a seat on the board of the project company.

The project will provide 20 million kWhs of clean energy per year and create 12 permanent jobs. The project is also supporting a number of socio-economic development initiatives and contains a BEE shareholding of 30%.

Adams Solar PV Facility 75MW

The Adams 75MW Solar Project is located near Kathu in the Northern Cape Province. This project was conceived by APS from inception and has been sold to Enel Green Power, an Italian Utility. APS still manages certain asepects of the development and construction activities.

The project will provide 170 million kWhs of clean energy per year and create around 1800 equivalent jobs over its operating life. The project is also supporting a number of local socio-economic development initiatives.

Sirius Solar PV Facility 75MW

The Sirius 75MW Solar Project is located near Upington in the Northern Cape Province. This project was conceived by APS from inception and has been bid in partnership with Scatec Solar, an Norwegian Solar IPP. Sirius received preferred bidder status on 15th April 2015. APS still manages certain asepects of the development and construction activities and has options to invest into the project.

The project uses solar tracking technology and will provide 215 million kWhs of clean energy per year and create around 1800 equivalent jobs over its operating life. The project is also supporting a number of local socio-economic development initiatives.
