Aveng Grinaker LTA. The work to be carried out by Solek included the procurement, delivery,
installation, testing and commissioning of a 64kWp solar PV system. The system is installed in a gridtie
configuration, thus directly coupled as an embedded generation facility to the 380Vac network of
the Mitchell’s Plain Provincial Hospital . The system has been divided into 6 system modules that are
distributed on the roofs of north-facing buildings. This embedded generation facility will reduce the
electrical base load of the hospital, resulting in a saving in electricity for the next 25 Years.
