The Kathu and Bokpoort thermosolar plants in Northern Cape Province (South Africa), for which SENER provides essential technology such as the SENERtrough® parabolic trough collectors and the system of thermal storage in molten salt, have received the "Deal of the Year" and "Large Scale Renewable Energy Project" awards respectively in the African Utility Week Industry Awards. SENER is part of the construction consortium engaged in these projects together with other companies in the sector. Particularly, Bokpoort was built by a joint venture between SENER, Acciona and TSK and South Africa’s Crowie, whereas Kathu Solar Park is being built by engineering and construction companies SENER and Acciona. 

It has been an honour. These prizes are a testimony of SENER's capacity in the projects carried out in South Africa, such as the Kathu Plot Park or the Bokpoort plant” said Siyabonga Mbanjwa, SENER's Country Manager in South Africa, the awards ceremony.

The NOORo solar complex, a project in which SENER is also part of the construction consortium with other sector companies, was a finalist in the "Large Scale Renewable Energy Project" category in the ceremony held on 17 May in the International Convention Centre in South Africa.
