Sasol boost for solar energy research

first_imgThe investment forms part of Sasol’s university collaboration project, which builds on the company’s longstanding relationships with leading South African research universities to partner in research and development projects. The solar thermal energy research at Stellenbosch University supports Sasol’s initiative to investigate opportunities in the field of renewable energies and low carbon electricity. The funding is in addition to a R4-million investment by the university on expanding the research facilities and appointing support staff in the solar thermal energy research group, Sasol said in a statement last week. The money will be used to appoint a senior researcher to lead the research effort, and to purchase new equipment for the University’s Solar Roof Laboratory. Renewable energies Research and teaching expertise Investing in universities Training scientists “The Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering has a long history of involvement with the South African power generation industry, delivering valuable research results that frequently led to improvements in the efficiency of power stations making it a logical partner for Sasol in researching new energy opportunities,” Sasol said. 11 August 2009 During 2008, Sasol formed a New Energy division to develop business opportunities that would help reduce the company’s greenhouse gas footprint. Stellenbosch University established a Centre for Renewable and Sustainable Energy Studies in 2007 to implement its postgraduate programme in renewable and sustainable energy studies. Through the collaboration, universities will be able to leverage Sasol’s research resources, while Sasol will be able to complement their own research efforts and capabilities by leveraging academic excellence to assist with the effective execution of research and development projects. “The primary objective of this programme, funded by the South African National Energy Research Institute, is to train scientists and engineers with the required technical expertise to unlock the country’s renewable energy resources, on the one hand, and implement appropriate technology for using sustainable energy, on the other.” “Southern Africa is blessed with some of the best solar radiation in the world, which is why Sasol supports the development of solar energy technologies as a viable renewable energy source for southern Africa within a carbon-constrained future,” Sasol said. Over the last 11 years, the department has focussed on bulk renewable solar power generation. South African petrochemicals group Sasol has announced a R3-million, five-year sponsorship of solar thermal energy research at Stellenbosch University’s Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering. Stellenbosch University has established research and teaching expertise spanning a wide spectrum in renewable energy, and in particular in solar thermal energy.

The penstock pipe carrying water to the project from North Eastern Electric Power Corporation’s reservoir burst at around 6.30 a.m. on Monday.“We are waiting for the water to recede before starting the search and rescue operations,” a corporation official said, declining to be quoted. He said they hoped the flow of water would be checked in the next 24 hours after workers managed to lower the sluice gate at the intake point of the ruptured pipeline.Experts roped inExperts from NHPC Limited, BHEL and other agencies have also been working to bring the situation under control, he said. Three of the missing people were NEEPCO employees. The fourth was employed by a firm engaged in maintaining the pipeline.The corporation had in a statement said the pipelines of the project had been repaired in 2018. The public sector NEEPCO, headquartered in Shillong, runs the project that was commissioned in March 1984.The Opposition Congress, however, said the pipelines were past their expiry date in 2014 and the energy PSU had been provided ₹200 crore to replace them. Party’s senior spokesperson Durga Das Boro said the disaster could have caused greater damage had there been any habitations downstream of the project site.last_img read more
