18 September 2023

Sarens signs a contract with Scatec for offloading and installation operations at the hybrid solar farm in Kenhardt, South Africa

Last March 2023, our Sarens team in South Africa signed a contract with our trusted client Scatec for the offloading and installation of 456 BESS (Battery Energy Storage System) units and 90 MVPS units within the battery storage area for a hybrid solar farm in Kenhardt, South Africa. The project is one of the first RMIPPP in execution phase. The signing ceremony was held in Cape Town. Sarens was represented by Hendrik Sarens, Director, Tim Biesemans, Regional Director of Southern Africa and Christo van der Merwe, Depot Manager - Renewables & Special Projects.

“We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this operation as it opens our horizons in the renewables sector. Solar (I think ‘Renewables’ is a better word?) is a sector that can bring immense changes for the best on our planet, and we are dedicated to helping it grow with whatever we can do as referenced heavy lifting and engineered transport solutions and service provider globally”, stated Tim Biesemans.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023 and will supplement the power grid of the country with 540MW of installed capacity.
