FOR SCAF II SUPPORT

JCM

Golomoti, Malawi
Solar, 30 MW, operational, SL 1
support for early stage work

Golomoti Solar is a 20MW solar photovoltaic project with a 10MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) at Dedza, approximately 100km south east of Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe. Golomoti Solar began delivering power to Malawi’s national grid in 2022.

SCAF supported the Golomoti Solar project under SL1 co-financing some of the early feasibility work.

THE BLUE CIRCLE

Dam Nai, Vietnam
Wind, 39.4 MW, operational
SL2 support

The 40 MW Dam Nai project is located in the Ninh Thuan Province, about 13 km North East of Phan Rang city, Vietnam. The Dam Nai project was the first foreign-owned wind power plant in Vietnam. The first phase of three wind turbine generators (WTGs) was commissioned in Q4 2017 while the second phase of 12 WTGs was commissioned in Q4 2018. SCAF supported the project under its Support Line 2, co-financing geographical surveys of the site, feasibility works, and technical studies.

Dai Phong, Vietnam
Wind, 40 MW, operational
SL2 support

The 40 MW Dai Phong project is located in Binh Thuan Province, Vietnam, about 6 km north of Mui Ne and 170 km north-east of Ho Chi Minh City. The Dai Phong project is the first stage of the larger Mui Ne project with a potential of 200+ MW. The first stage consists of 10 WTGs, which have the largest rotor diameter in Southeast Asia with Vestas supplying the first V150-4.2MW in the region. The project has reached COD in July 2020. SCAF supported the project under its Support Line 2 co-financing a second meteorological mast, feasibility works, and technical studies.

Sindicatum

Tarlac, Philippines
Solar, 60.1 MW, operational
SL2 support

The 60.1 MW Project is located in Pampanga Province, Luzon, Philippines, approximately 110 km north of Manila. The electricity is sold under a long term PPA with the largest private sector electric distribution utility company in the Philippines. The project achieved technical completion in July 2021 and official COD on 16 Sept 2021. SCAF Support Line 2 was used mainly for technical consultancy and studies related to project assessment and feasibility, facility studies, land assessment, civil and site preparation, permitting. SCAF funding helped with timely completion of permitting and expedited financial close.

VS Hydro

Great Zimbabwe Hydro
Zimbabwe, Hydro, 5 MW, in construction
SL2 support

Great Zimbabwe Hydro is a 5 MW hydro power plant adjacent to Lake Mutirikwi in Masvingo province, Zimbabwe. The project will be realised by retrofitting an existing dam wall used for irrigation purposes that was erected in the 1960s. The project relies on the first-of-its-kind non-consumptive water license in the country and will lead the way for hopefully many more projects to come. The project is currently under construction and is expected to reach COD in Q4 2023. SCAF supported the project under its Support Line 2 co-financing legal cost and technical studies.

Africa REN

Kodeni, Burkina Faso
Solar, 38 MW, operational
SL2 support

Kodéni is a 38 MW Solar PV Power Plant near Bobo-Dioulasso in Burkina Faso. It is the largest power plant and the first public-private partnership to reach financial close in the country. Support Line 2 Co-financing provided by SCAF to Africa REN was used for Kodéni to match costs for legal fees, technical studies, setting up the Environmental and Social Management System and Environmental and Social Management Plan as well as in country mission costs which are a key requirement by financiers.
