Namibia: Construction start for solar IPPs

Issue 366 - 06 Apr 2018 | 5 minute read
Construction got under way in March at a 10MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project near Mariental, one of four being developed in Namibia by Evolution Africa’s Manna Renewables, all of which are expected online in August. The project was initially developed by Israel’s FK Generators until Manna Renewables purchased a 79% stake in mid-2017, alongside Beta Energy, a company owned by a group of Namibian women. Evolution Africa is a private equity and financial advisory business focused on the infrastructure and renewable energy markets in Africa.
