ENERGY Power plans for Special Economic Zone A new solar plant is at heart of energy provision for a range of industries. sustainable and long-term growth, not only during the construction phase, but for a long time after. Initial plans for a US-billion coal-power station have been shelved. In its place, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOA) for a 1 000MW solar power plant was signed in December 2021 with a Chinese investor. The Eskom base-load will combine with solar power to become the mixed energy source to support the South Site. Pre-feasibility study: concluded EIA project application: to commence after confirmation of the site selection. Credit: APPA The Musina-Makhado Special Economic Zone (MMSEZ) is an initiative of the Limpopo Provincial Government with the MMSEZ SOC as the implementing agent. The MMSEZ SOC, a subsidiary of the Limpopo Economic Development Agency (LEDA), has appointed a private operator for the Energy and Metallurgical Complex (EMSEZ). Energy generation is vital for economic growth and the MMSEZ provides an opportunity not only to provide power to fuel industry and manufacturing, but to bring electricity to communities that have previously been neglected. The MMSEZ is focussed on creating Attracting associated industries Attracting industries in the metal sector will forge a link to the metallurgy complex planned to be developed on the southern SEZ Site. The light manufacturing of metal products, when exported, will increase trade. There is an ongoing market locally and in Africa for roof sheeting, window frames, stainless-steel products, other metal alloys like axels, piston rods and many more products. The electronics industry will manufacture mobile devices, televisions and circuit boards. Industries within the electronics sector include telecommunications, networking, electronic components, industrial electronics and consumer electronics. The food and beverage industry beneficiates agricultural produce abundant in the region. This increases localisation, value-add and enhances agro-processing. The wood and paper industry creates finished products for construction and domestic use such as fencing, flooring, furniture, musical instruments, sports equipment and many other products.
