Commenting on the development, juwi-COO, Stephan Hansen said, “Utility scale solar PV has become the most cost-effective source of energy in many parts of the world. The juwi group is globally very well positioned and one of the top renewable energy project developer and EPC service providers. The high quality construction of the 135 megawatt solar project emphasizes our striving for operational excellence in EPC.”

Besides, from the South African renewable energy market, the company was able to finalize the contracts for building a portfolio of 250 MW as it has been selected preferred EPC contractor to 3 utility-scale PV projects in bidding round four.
