The solar PV plant is expected to mitigate up to 237,000 tons of CO2 emissions equivalent, roughly the equivalent of removing 50,000 combustion engine cars from the road, while serving to create 700 jobs during the construction phase with at least 53 permanent jobs estimated for availability in operation and maintenance.

The power plant will enable Richards Bay Minerals to reduce its energy spending and source alternative electrical supply as scheduled rolling blackouts in South Africa – load shedding – continues to hamper productivity.
