In South Africa we have started a pre-FS for delivering renewable electricity to a sawmill owned by a eucalyptus forestry company located in the Tzaneen Province. The aim is to construct a run-of-river micro hydropower facility without a powerhouse, near the Great Letaba river. Apart from the sawmill, also a number of small communities will be connected to the mini grid. The project may be a starting platform to develop more small projects along the Letaba river.
In Ifugao Province in the Philippines we have started a pre-FS to establish a micro hydropower
facility for a large ecotourist resort and surrounding indigenous communities. The area is a UN Heritage site and is protected by the strictest environmental and ecological regulations.
