Globeleq is the majority partner in the Ikamva Consortium and has been selected to contribute more solar projects across the country.

The six solar PV projects will total 450 MW of generation capacity adding to Globeleq’s majority owned and operated solar assets in Egypt and South Africa.  Globeleq and its partners in the Ikamva Consortium were named by South Africa’s Department of Minerals, Resources and Energy (DMRE) as Preferred Bidder for 12 (six wind and six solar) of the 25 projects chosen in South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) 5th bidding round.

Alongside of Globeleq, the Ikamva Consortium includes Mainstream Renewable Power, Africa Rainbow Energy & Power (AREP) and H1 Holdings and comprises more than 45 % of black ownership. The DMRE indicated that all 25 projects will inject a total of around R50 billion into the economy through private sector investment and will create more than 13,000 job opportunities.

The solar projects awarded are all located in the Free State province which has not yet seen any renewable projects constructed as part of the REIPPP Programme.

Job opportunities during development and construction will be focused on supporting local communities once the plants come online.  Globeleq South Africa’s existing team of 82 permanent staff is expected to increase by an additional 50 positions.
