Project Background

The agreement between Energy Partners and Afrupro determined that Energy Partners would provide the investment of R3.7m for the required upgrade and take ownership of the operations of the existing plant for a contracted period of 10 years. This would include a comprehensive maintenance agreement with remote monitoring and management. A fixed availability fee and variable usage fee is billed monthly, based on the refrigeration required. All electricity used for refrigeration is also refunded to the client as part of the agreement
