Nollen Group has invested in Makana Power (Pty) Ltd., a company formed for the development of a 3MW biomass power plant near Grahamstown, South Africa.

The project will use sustainable woodchips from the area as its sole feedstock, providing much needed renewable electricity in South Africa. Other benefits include job creation in an area of historically high unemployment and reduced carbon emissions.  The project will also comply with South Africa’s Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment initiative.
