Energy and chemical company Sasol is now testing an on-site 140 MW gas-fired combined heat and power plant at its facility at Sasolburg in South Africa’s Free State.
The plant is described by the company as South Africa’s largest gas engine plant. It replaces coal-derived grid power and is due to hit full capacity by year-end, one quarter ahead of schedule.
“Sasol partners with government to deliver solutions and this latest investment is part of our significant capital expenditure programme in South Africa,” said Sasol New Energy’s managing director, Henri Loubser
Sasol is a signatory to the South African Energy Efficiency Accord, an agreement between government and industry leaders to take voluntary measures to increase energy efficiency.
