Ilanga CSP 4 Parabolic Trough Northern Cape DEA Ref: 14/12/16/3/3/2/868 Emvelo Holdings (Pty) Ltd

Emvelo Holdings (Pty) Ltd, an independent power developer of concentrating solar power (CSP) plants in South Africa, is proposing to develop an additional Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Facility and associated infrastructure adjacent to the authorised CSP site Karoshoek LFTT 2 (1 x 100 MW Parabolic Trough) Site 5, DEA Ref No.: 14/12/16/3/3/2/295) within the Karoshoek Solar Valley Development.  The site is located approximately 30 km east of Upington within the Khara Hais Local Municipality in the Northern Cape (refer to Figure 1.1).  The proposed project is to be known as the Ilanga CSP 4 Project.  The Ilanga CSP 4 Project is proposed to generate up to 50MW in capacity and will be constructed within an area of approximately 200ha in extent within the broader property.  

The purpose of the additional CSP facility currently being investigated is to facilitate the increase in capacity of the authorised Karoshoek LFTT 2 facility from 100MW to 150MW in order to meet the generating capacity thresholds specified by the Department of Energy (DoE) in its Expedited Bid Window of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers Procurement (REIPPP) Programme (Tender No: DOE/003/13/14 – as amended from time to time).
