Glass manufacturer Groot Glass intends to seek an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor to build, finance, own and operate an 80MW solar photovoltaic (PV) plant in Tses in the Karas region of southern Namibia. The company named Germany-based Suntrace in early May as technical consultant for the project, which is designed to generate cost-effective electricity for the company’s five planned manufacturing factories, with surplus power to be sold to the national grid.
