Bokpoort CSP is a greenfield Independent Power Project (IPP) which is an integral part of South Africa’s renewable IPP program. The project is developed on a BOOT (build, own, operate, transfer) basis with a total power generating capacity of 50 MWe net power output. The project is equipped with the largest thermal storage size ever adopted for a similar operational size providing nine hours of storage and is among the most efficient solar plants in the world.
