Soventix South Africa (PTY) Ltd (16.29 MB)
 

 Soventix South Africa (PTY) ltd., a company specialized on the development and projection of PV installations, reinforces the project development team with Michael Smith as new Design and Commissioning Manager. Michael Smith is a pioneer of the South African solar business, with over 28 years of experience in electrical installations and a multitude of considerable projects realized under his survey.  Among others, Michael Smith supervised as project manager the two largest rooftop photovoltaic installations in South Africa.

In Longmeadow, daylight harvesting reduced the required daytime electricity by 50%, introducing a State-of-the-art environmental practice at the Distribution Centre of Pick n Pay. The same environmental standard is to be achieved in Smith’s most recent project where he designed a large solar plant for the new Pick n Pay Distribution Center in Philippi, Cape Town. With a capacity of 300 kWp, the system will deliver a major part of the required energy and become one of largest solar roof top projects ever to be installed in South Africa. It is conceptualized to be extendable to a size of 1MW.  Jean Paul de Villiers, Director of Soventix South Africa brings matters to a head: “The vast experience Smith brings in is a valuable contribution to our business. Not only does he possess remarkable practical knowledge in terms of System Design and Installation, he has also managed successfully a variety of different departments - from the Electrical Department to Logistics to R&D. Without any doubt, we have found a versatile all-round talent and we are looking forward to a prosperous collaboration.
