Release by Scatec has entered a 2-year lease agreement with ENGIE to provide a mobile plug & play solar PV plant. The mobile unit will provide solar energy for ENGIE’s hydrogen production plant located at the Anglo American Platinum – Mogalakwena Mine in Limpopo, South Africa.
“We are proud to support ENGIE and Anglo American in this important project. This is Release by Scatec’s first involvement with powering hydrogen production, and further proves the potential for pre-assembled and containerized solar PV in the mining industry,” says Hans Olav Kvalvaag, SVP Release at Scatec.
This is the first involvement in powering hydrogen production for Scatec as a company, and will be delivered by its scalable power solution, Release. The plant will produce 616kWp of solar energy.
“The agreement is another important milestone for us in delivering reliable and renewable power to the mining industry, but also as a way of powering hydrogen production. The Release model is gaining traction, and with its flexibility both with regards to contract term and capacity, has great potential in mining,” Kvalvaag continues.
The new plant will be a model for how to decarbonize hydrogen production in the mining industry for the future.
Release by Scatec has great expectations for the project and its potential to be rolled out on a greater scale.
