Status:

Under Construction 

Rosh Pinah Solar Park (RPSP) is a 5.7 MWp PV plant which was developed by Emesco near Rosh Pinah in Namibia. The plant is currently under construction and will operate under a 15-year take-or-pay PPA with Rosh Pinah Zinc Corporation (RPZC) once it reaches commercial operation. The plant will replace 30% of RPZC fossil-fuel based energy currently procured from the national utility. 

As part of RPSP's Environmental Management Plan Emesco, in conjunction with the Lithops Research & Conservation Foundation, established an on-site plant rehabilitation facility for the protection and relocation of sensitive plant species prior to construction.
