Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe released the names of the eight preferred bidders including three power ship projects selected as part of government’s 2 000-MW ‘emergency’ procurement programme and also launched the much-anticipated fifth bid window BW5 for the procurement of new wind and solar. However, he resisted growing calls for a raising of the license-exemption threshold for distributed projects at mines, smelters, factories and farms from 1 MW to 50 MW, indicating instead that the cap would be increased to only 10 MW. This despite arguments that a liberalization of South Africa’s convoluted licensing regime was the cheapest and quickest way to unlock at least 5...

Turkey's Karpowership, one of the world's largest power ship firms, has submitted a plan to South Africa to provide "several" ships capable of plugging a severe power shortage in the country, a senior company official said on Tuesday. South Africa's State-owned power utility Eskom has regularly cut power over the past year, hobbling economic growth in Africa's most industrialized country as unreliable coal-fired plants struggle to generate enough electricity to meet demand. In December, South Africa's energy department issued a request for information RFI to source between 2 000 MW and 3 000 MW of power generation capacity that could be connected in the shortest time, at the least cost. "We...
