Solarcentury Africa and Dallaglio partner for 7MWp Eureka Gold Mine solar plant, Zimbabwe




Solarcentury Africa, in an exclusive collaboration with Dallaglio, is set to construct a cutting-edge 7 MWp solar power plant at the renowned Eureka Gold Mine in Guruve, Zimbabwe. This strategic partnership, supported by parent company BB Energy, underscores Solarcentury Africa’s commitment to establishing a robust portfolio of renewable energy facilities in Zimbabwe and the broader Southern Africa region.


The solar power plant, aimed at meeting the rising power demand in the area, will not only cater to anchor off-takers but also facilitate trade on a merchant basis. The Eureka Gold Mine, a vital economic driver in the Guruve district, will benefit from reduced energy costs, enhanced power supply reliability, and a substantial reduction in carbon emissions once the project becomes operational.


Solarcentury Africa will oversee the project’s design, development, financing, construction, and operation phases, with financial closure expected early next year. The initiative aligns with Dallaglio’s firm commitment to sustainability and contributes to Zimbabwe’s energy transition amid significant challenges and reforms in the country’s power sector.


The project has garnered full support from the Zimbabwe Investment and Development Agency (ZIDA), actively assisting Solarcentury Africa in obtaining the necessary licenses and permits. Jason De Carteret, CEO of Solarcentury Africa, expressed enthusiasm, stating, “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Dallaglio, marking a significant milestone in our mission to develop a renewable asset portfolio in Zimbabwe and the surrounding region.”


James Beare, CEO of Dallaglio, emphasized the importance of the partnership, stating, “The collaboration with Solarcentury Africa is an essential sustainability step for us. It reduces our cost of production, allowing Dallaglio to focus on our core business while contributing to the broader goal of environmental responsibility.”
