Kathu Solar Park is a 100 MW greenfield Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project with parabolic trough technology and equipped with a molten salt storage system that allows 4.5 hours of thermal energy storage and thus limits the intermittent nature of solar energy.
Construction started on site in May 2016 and is due for completion in the second half of 2018. Approximately 1200 jobs, of which 36% will be local, will be created during the construction phase. It is estimated that the Kathu Solar Park will save six million tonnes of CO2 over 20 years and will further promote local economic development through various projects such as a local community trust for the benefit of communities in the John Taolo Gaetsewe District municipality (JTG).
On 1 June 2018 Kathu Solar Park in partnership with Kelebogile Trust was awarding the first JTG trainees for the completion of the training that took place at Kathu TVET college. Mark Janick the project manager of CSP encouraged the fellow awardees with his speech stating that the training was to challenge students in order to entrust them to run the thirteen-billion-rand project in the JTG. For the training to succeed 354 CVs were sent across the JTG region. The project is up and running and already having its first employee, who proved herself to be the highest skilled trainee.
