PPC Solar Park, De Hoek

Sturdee Energy has been appointed by PPC Cement to develop a 7MW AC Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Plant (referred to as the De Hoek Solar Park) and associated infrastructure adjacent to the PPC De Hoek Factory, located within Bergriver Local Municipality in the Western Cape Province. The proposed solar park will encompass an area of less than 20 hectares and will be used to generate power for private consumption at the adjacent cement factory and neighbouring mine. The project also requires an 11kV single-circuit overhead line (OHL), approximately 1.88km in length, to connect the new proposed plant to the existing PPC 11kV substation. The Solar PV site will contain internal gravel roads, a security guardhouse (at the access point) and an operations and maintenance building.

CES has been appointed by Sturdee Energy as the Environmental Assessment Practitioner (EAP) to conduct the necessary EIA Process for the project in terms of the National Environmental Management Act (NEMA, Act No. 107 of 1998 and subsequent amendments) EIA Regulations (2014 and subsequent 2017 amendments).
