Renewable Energy


With an increasing global drive to reduce the carbon footprint on the environment by introducing green initiatives, renewable energy solutions have become a priority and Tractionel is well positioned and committed to playing a major role in this space.

Solar PV and wind turbine technology costs have reduced significantly over the last 13 years and Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) costs are also fast-reducing. In many cases, renewable energy systems are not only producing cleaner electricity but also at a lower cost than grid supplied electricity.

Tractionel Enterprise is uncompromising in our approach and understands the complexity of selecting the right mix of renewable energy technologies, energy storage, grid power and conventional back-up generation to successfully execute a project.

Tractionel has in-depth knowledge and experience to guide its clients through the countless possible scenarios, to arrive at a solution which best suits their business and needs.

Tractionel was awarded its first Renewable Energy project in 2013 and quickly established itself as a pioneer in the sector. With the vision of being the renewable energy solutions provider of choice in Southern Africa, Tractionel continues to set the industry benchmark and consistently grows its market share, ensuring that it is a major role player in the market. This not only secures the sustainability of the Company but also works towards the protection and preservation of our planet.

Tractionel employs best-in-breed expertise that keeps pace with global demand and best practices, constantly challenging themselves to improve service delivery to bring their client’s ideas to life, with an exceptional team of resident engineers, draftsmen, project managers, project planners, health and safety practitioners, quality assurance officers and a fully-fledged project office.
