ANIREP Solar recently finalized the acquisition of 55% shareholding in Access Aussenkjer Solar One Namibia (Pty) Ltd (AASON) which will build own and operate a 20MW Solar PV project at Khan. The project is expected to go live end of 2022 which will bring the total capacity of ANIREP Solar (Pty) Ltd to 30.73MW (which is 16% of the market).
