Solar tracking expert Exosun confirms high local content performance to optimally serve the South African utility-scale PV market

Company renews its B-BBEE level 4 certificate

Cape Town, South Africa, May 3, 2016. Exosun, worldwide leading supplier of advanced, cost-effective solar tracking solutions for ground-mounted photovoltaic (PV) plants, confirms high local content performance in South Africa one year after the opening of its subsidiary in Cape Town. The recent renewal of Exosun Pty's B-BBEE (Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment) level 4 certificate proves this accomplishment.


In order to maximize the performance of PV power plants, Exosun's local team offers its customers top-notch solar tracking systems manufactured, transported, and installed by high quality South African companies. Exosun Pty also accompanies its clients throughout all phases of a solar plant life cycle by providing engineering support services from the project design phase up to tracker installation, commissioning, and O&M.

Over the past year, the company carried out the design transfer of its technology from Europe to qualified South African manufacturers in order to ensure local production of 87% of its tracker value. What's more, by carefully selecting local partners with an excellent B-BBEE level themselves, for the production, transport, and installation of its trackers (procurement recognition), Exosun's local content performance exceeds 100%.

With a concern for continuous improvement to contribute to the country's economic development, Exosun's expanding South African team endeavours to maintain and possibly increase the company's B-BBEE level in the future. After successfully deploying 350 MW of solar tracking systems worldwide and thanks to high local content contribution, Exosun is ready to optimally serve IPPs, PV plant developers and EPCs on the booming South African PV market.
