  • The spanish company will assist their client as a Technical Consultant and a Specialized Advisor in order to improve the energy conversion process.
  • The goal is to be completely green in 2030.

ISE has recently signed a contract with an important African mining company, to develop the whole process of energy conversion of the mine. The goal for 2030 is to achieve clean energy, moving away from the conventional.

In this process, the spanish company will be responsible for carrying out the design of the photovoltaic installation that will hybridize with a storage system with batteries, to guarantee the supply demanded by the Client. 

In addition, as specialists in photovoltaic solar energy, ISE will also be the Technical Consultant responsible for the entire bidding process. From the preparation of the technical-economic documentation, evaluation of proposals and EPC candidates, technical specifications of the equipment, to the advice on the contracting process of the EPC company.  

ISE will assist their client as a consultant and Specialized Advisor, during the bidding, contracting, execution, initial operation and commissioning phases of the installation. For this, we will have specialized personnel and our proven experience in photovoltaic and storage works.

In words of the General Manager of the company, Francisco Fernández del Pino, “this type of work represents a new professional challenge for our company, because we are able to adapt ourselves to the new challenges of the market, with the peculiarity of working in Africa, an emergent and very demanding market for any company.”

Their strengths are backed by more than fifteen years of experience in successful photovoltaic projects, their international footprint and more than 23GW of technical consultancy in photovoltaics.    

To date, ISE have performed different works, including detailed engineering, commissioning and quality control, on four African projects: Lesedi and Letsasi in South Africa; Mont Choisy in the Republic of Mauritius and Mocuba in Mozambique, recently inaugurated. Among them, ISE have already added nearly 200 MW in the country. These plans can produce enough energy to meet the energy demand of thousands of households.

For the professional team involved in this new project, collaborating in the energetic transformation towards a cleaner energy that allows development is, together with an important professional challenge, a personal satisfaction.

The process will begin in September, expecting to finalize contractor selection by early 2020.
