April 30, 2014.- Abengoa (MCE: ABG.B/P SM /NASDAQ: ABGB), the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, together with its partner Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), today held an open day at Kaxu Solar One, the 100 MW parabolic trough solar plant that Abengoa is constructing in South Africa, near to the town of Pofadder in the northern part of Northern Cape province.

The Open Day consisted of a guided tour of the plant followed by a tasting of typical regional foods.

Kaxu Solar One opened its doors to residents of the Pofadder community as well as anyone else interested in visiting the plant. The day was attended by more than 150 people.

Kaxu Solar One, a parabolic trough solar plant with a 100 MW capacity and three hours of energy storage, will prevent the emission of 315,000 tons of CO2 every year. Some 1,000 jobs have been created during its construction, in addition to a further 35 positions that will be required to operate and maintain the plant. An additional 200 direct and indirect jobs will be created in the local community.

Kaxu Solar One, together with Khi Solar One, a tower technology plant that Abengoa is also constructing in South Africa, are part of the South African government’s plan to generate up to 17,800 MW of renewable power by 2030, reducing the country’s dependency on oil and natural gas.
