On the strength of our extensive overseas solar farm construction experience, our optimized structure designs, our flexible range of services , and our 100% local production, we were awarded a 94.5MW ground-mount project in Round One. Now Powerway has secured two more ground-mount projects, totaling 30MW.
These two projects are located in Northern Cape Province: De Aar (10MW) and Prieska (20MW). The project investor and one of the operators is Gestamp Solar, the world's largest photovoltaic power plant constructor and the world’s leading EPC company.
According to the terms of the contract, Powerway will begin preparing material shipments in mid-July, commence installation in early August, and expect to complete the project in 10 weeks.
The company has developed a new screw type specifically for the rocky geological conditions in South Africa. Our 100% local production shortens the lead time and improves efficiency, insuring that the project will be finished as scheduled.
"Our cooperation with Gestamp Solar, one of the world's leading PV companies, is very meaningful to us,” said Paul Sherry Wei, Powerway’s chief marketing officer. “It is an important milestone in the development of our business in South Africa. We see this as an excellent start. Our company has extensive overseas project experience and innovative ideas, and offers full service and efficient operations. Working with the world's major photovoltaic solar developer and EPC contractor gives us a stable, long-term cooperative relationship with which to continue the development of large-scale photovoltaic power plants in South Africa. This security strengthens our ability to take advantage of the long-term potential of this emerging, high-growth solar energy market. "
“Gestamp Solar is world-class Solar PV company, and our cooperation with them is an important milestone in our development in South Africa,” said Sherry Shi, CMO of the Powerway group. “With our extensive overseas project experience, innovative product design, all-round service, and efficient operations, we are confident that Powerway will achieve significant penetration into the promising, rapidly growing South African market, working in collaboration with the world’s leading solar project developers and EPC companies.”
