Sasol has invited interested bidders to participate in a Request for Proposals (RFPs) process for the development of two embedded 10MW Solar Photo-Voltaic (PV) facilities at its South African operations. These areas included will be Secunda, Mpumalanga and Sasolburg, Free State. This forms part of its response to climate change.
The closing date for submissions is Friday, 02 October 2020.
The Sasol Chief Sustainability Officer, Hermann Wenhold expressed the company’s excitement at the launch of the RFP. The development has become part of Sasol’s first step towards realising its commitment and objective to eventually procure 600MW of renewable energy capacity.
“We are excited to launch the RFP which forms part of our broader Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission reduction aspiration and moves us forward on our journey to achieving our target of a 10% GHG emission reduction by 2030,” Wenhold said.
The process began in May this year when Sasol invited bidders to participate in the Request for Information (RFI) process for the supply of renewable energy.
The successful bidders will have to design, finance, construct, operate, maintain and own the Solar PV facilities and their associated connection infrastructure to supply 10MW of power to each of Sasol’s operations at their own cost. They will also be expected to supply electricity from the Solar PV facilities as Independent Power Producers (IPPs) to Sasol as part of a long-term Power Purchase Agreement.
Interested Bidders may apply for access to the RFP by forwarding their company profile together with contact details to email@example.com
