Sasol Invites Bidders for Supply of Renewable Energy

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/14/2020, Location: Africa

Sasol is inviting bidders to participate in a Request for Information (RFI) process for the supply of renewable energy to its South African operations. An international integrated chemicals and energy company, Sasol’s core business is leveraging technologies and the expertise of its people to build and operate world-scale facilities to produce a range of high-value product streams, including liquid fuels, chemicals and low-carbon electricity. The company’s largest operations are in South Africa in Secunda, Mpumalanga and Sasolburg in the Free State.

In October last year, Sasol released its inaugural Climate Change Report where it committed to reduce its absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the South African operations by at least 10% by 2030, off a 2017 baseline. The company has identified renewable energy as a key lever for reducing its GHG emissions and moving it towards producing products in a more sustainable manner.

The purpose of the RFI process is to identify partners for the potential deployment of renewable energy projects. It is envisaged that the successful bidder(s) will supply energy as Independent Power Producer(s), in terms of Power Purchase Agreement(s) agreed between the parties.

“We intend procuring, in total, approximately 600 MW of renewable electricity capacity with the aim of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 1.6 million tons per annum. This will favourably position Sasol to deliver on our commitment of reducing our South African GHG emissions by at least 10% by 2030,” said Hermann Wenhold, Sasol’s Chief Sustainability Officer.

In aligning with the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP 2019), Wind and Solar Photovoltaic (PV) technologies are favoured at this stage. The projects must show a generation capacity of at least 20 MW to be implemented either as wheeled options from suitable locations across South Africa, or as embedded options close to Sasol’s facilities in Sasolburg or Secunda.

Interested bidders may apply for access to the RFI by forwarding their company profile together with contact details to: renewable.energy@sasol.com.

The closing date for submissions is Friday, 05 June 2020.
