Sisi ni Nani (“Who we Are”)

ADES is a subsidiary of Afri-Devo Energy which is actively involved in the energy sector and most specifically renewable (Solar) through Ample Solar. Ample solar has pipeline of 550 MW under development in South Africa. Afri-Devo Energy is also involved in the EPC (“Engineering Procurement and Construction”) sector and we are offering Management Services to TSK and GRS for construction of Greefspan Solar PV farm (75 MW) in Douglas within the Northern Cape province of South Africa.

ADES have designed, supplied and installed a battery for Eskom’s demonstration and testing facility in Rosherville. Our battery has been tested for approximately four (4) years and has received the completion acceptance certificate. On the other hand, we have worked closely with Eskom during the maintenance and operations period thereby ensuring that the battery operates smoothly and to its fullest capacity.

ADES is so far the only local company to have received the Battery Energy Storage system (“BESS”) certificate from the largest utility in Africa. Eskom will be deploying the largest BESS project in the continent and ADES is well positioned to once again be of a lending hand to the utility.

ADES has the capacity to Design Supply and Install (“DSI”) as well as provide the Operations and Maintenance (“O&M”) services to any utility that would need our assistance. We can also provide the EPC capacity in the construction of a solar PV farm.
