Day visit to Saldanha Freeport and bespoke B2B Matchmaking sessions

Discover the evolving cleantech landscape in South Africa during the Enlit Africa (Utility) Week and connect with decision makers in the energy and water industry. Join us on a day visit to Saldanha Bay to learn first-hand about plans and opportunities around the Saldanha freeport.

South Africa stands at a pivotal moment, with its energy sector's liberalization signaling a bold move towards sustainable and resilient power solutions, including renewable energy, e.g. green hydrogen, aligning with the National Infrastructure Plan 2050. Waste and wastewater management, alongside the water value chain are critical focal points in South Africa and the region. Enlit Africa (Utility Week) which will take place from 21-23 May 2024 in Cape Town, attracts the highest concentration of energy and water industry professionals in South Africa, offering a critical platform for networking and collaboration during its three-day exhibition. For further information and details on participating or visiting the Swiss pavilion organized by Swissenviro at Enlit, please visit the Swissenviro website. 

Following the Enlit, you will have an opportunity to join us for a one-day site visit to Saldanha Bay on 24 May 2024 to explore developments and opportunities, particularly focusing on the Saldanha Freeport. You will learn about the Industrial Development Zone's ambitions for green and hydrogen energy, the Transnet Port and Steel Export Terminal/Facilities, and plans for significant investments including a 1000 MW gas-fired power station. 

Additionally, Switzerland Global Enterprise / the Swiss Business Hub Southern Africa  is offering B2B matchmaking services for Swiss companies, arranging three to five tailored meetings with firms on the sidelines of the Enlit Africa.
