RustMo1 site visit announced for PV Project Development Africa in August



Attendees of PV Project Development Africa will be given a unique opportunity to visit the 7MW RustMo1 solar farm which has been awarded approved bidder status in Round I of South Africa’s REIPPP tender.

The RustMo1 photovoltaic plant is set to come online in November 2013 and delegates will be able to get an exclusive first look at the facility on the morning of 26 August. Jack Ahearne, the organizer of PV Project Development Africa, announced the news on Wednesday 5 June. “With RustMo1 scheduled to be one of the first projects to come online in South Africa, as part of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme, interest in seeing the plant has been enormous” he said. “We are delighted to give attendees of PV Project Development Africa the chance to tour the plant and see a key milestone in the progress of the South African PV industry”.

The RustMo1 plant has a power output of 7MW, and will supply power to the Eskom grid upon commercial operation, scheduled for November 2013. The plant is located in Buffelspoort, 22 kilometres outside the city of Rustenburg in the North West Province. The 19 hectare site will consist of 29,808 photovoltaic solar modules upon completion, as well as 11 inverters and a step up transformer to connect to the 88kV substation.

In August, attendees at PV Project Development Africa will be taken on an exclusive tour of the facility by its developers, Momentous Energy, a South African black-owned development company.
