PV tracking systems specialist, Exosun has established a subsidiary in Cape Town with plans to partner with local firms on tracker system construction to meet local content rules.
Exosun said that the subsidiary would provide sales, engineering support, as well as training on installation and O&M of its products to the growing South African market, due to the success of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Program (REIPPPP) and continued electricity shortages in the country.
“By establishing a subsidiary in Cape Town, we are able to optimally serve our customers based in South Africa with top-notch tracking systems and services adapted to their specific needs,” said Paula Korkie, Business Development Manager for Exosun, South Africa. “We are also developing partnerships with South African manufacturers to ensure high quality local production and reduce transportation costs.”
“We are confident that our technology, scalable and adaptable to all project and land types, will answer the needs of local and international PV plant developers, owners and operators in South Africa and the surrounding countries,” added Frédéric Conchy, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Exosun.
Major PV mounting systems specialist, Powerway and tier-1 PV manufacturer, JA Solar have already established a JV manufacturing facility in South Africa.
