Acciona owns 51% of the plant and Aveng 29%. Soul City and a community trust each own 10%.
During construction, more than R657 million was procured from or subcontracted to small and micro enterprises. Now that the plant is in operation, the project employs 19 people, 16 of whom work at the plant and the other three employees work at the head office in Cape Town. Six people are from the local community.
The plant’s development company has committed to allocating 2.1% of its annual revenues, around R8 million, to community-development measures.
