Plantech has been involved
in numerous renewable energy
projects within South Africa
Plantech’s engineers have been involved in a number of independent renewable projects where their responsibilities covered the design, approval and implementation of the balance-of-plant electrical network as well as the ESKOM grid connection.
Renewable energy service offerings
Our engineers advise renewable project developers on grid connection and balance-of-plant collector networks by providing specialist input regarding cost estimates, alternative solution negotiations and project feasibility studies.
ESKOM SELF-BUILT CONSULTANTS
Plantech is registered with ESKOM as a self built consultant. We are able to assist developers opting to construct portions of the grid connection infrastructure as self-built, with detailed substation and power line designs and obtaining the required approvals from Eskom for the planned grid connection infrastructure.
WIND POWER PROJECTS
The first large scale wind farm in South Africa became operational in 2014, and others are in planning and construction stages. We have been involved in a number of wind power projects within South Africa.
Our engineers together with various property renewable energy project developers are involved in the solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity market which will contribute to the country’s renewable energy roll-out. These include commercial rooftops, solar farms and hybrid systems.
LANDFILL GAS TO ELECTRICITY
Landfill gas (LFG) to electricity has been identified as one of the renewable energy technologies that the South African government will focus on in order to generate more electricity from renewable resources and Plantech has been involved in various projects advising municipalities and other key players.
