SOVENTIX is a leading German solar company that builds and operates PV solar systems around the globe – with operational solar plants and branches in twelve countries and four continents. One of the biggest branches is located in South Africa where Soventix develops large-scale Greenfield solar projects.
Soventix has developed a wide spectrum of solar projects ranging from a 33 MW grid connected solar park in the Dominican Republic (Phase I), the largest solar project in the Caribbean, to rooftop installations catering to industrial sites.
Powergas & SOVENTIX will primarily focus on Gas & Solar Hybrid Solutionfor industrial rooftop, solar applications will synchronize with the existing Gas Generators or grid power systems. This model will enable industries to have an additional source of power generation at a lower price than Diesel & even Gas FuelPower, whilst also significantly reducing emissions. Phase II of the joint venture will also aim to develop national solar parks that feed clean energy into the Nigerian grid.
The group's close partnerships and respective proven track records truly enable us to deliver reliable and cost effective power solutions in difficult operating environments. All partners and employees work to the highest ethical and compliance standards as expected of a UK or US limited firm.
