Development on the Power Alt facility; Middelburg, South Africa, started in 2007, where ADC was able to reach financial close on this 10MW facility within 3 weeks of partnering with an interested lender/investor.
Construction commenced in 2008 and ADC Projects was appointed as the Owner’s Project Manager. The project was successfully completed, on time and within budget, 11 months from financial close.
ADC is appointed the Operations and Maintenance partner to the facility and GE Jenbacher is tasked with the corrective maintenance of the plant technology equipment.
In 2012 Power Alt reached a milestone to become one of the first gas Independent Power Producers to connect and sell power to the SA state utility; Eskom.
ADC continues to operate and maintain the facility – clocking a collective 120,000 operating hours in 2016.
