South Africa

Small Projects Programme

BlueWave Solar has a portfolio of 30MW in the Department of Energy’s Small Projects IPP Procurement Program, which has a capacity cap of 5MW per project. In 2017 we were awarded Preferred Bidder for 10MW (two projects) and continue to develop the remainder of the portfolio for future rounds.

Large Projects Programme

BlueWave Solar has a project pipeline of over 460MW under development in the Department of Energy’s REIPPP Programme with each project having a maximum capacity of 75MW.

Private Sector Opportunities

BlueWave Solar is actively engaging with private stakeholders to provide off the grid utility scale power solutions. The uncertain power supply and pricing dynamics of South Africa makes this a major future growth area of the business.

International Project Experience

BlueWave Solar leverages a wealth of international experience having constructed over 15 utility-scale projects. The South Africa team has worked closely with the US office on a number of Massachusetts projects and has been exposed to the latest developments in one of the world’s most progressive solar markets.
