Cambridge Energy and Release by Scatec extend exclusive partnership in Africa
Simultaneously, Cambridge Energy announces commercial deployment of its second-generation Nomad, the Montaro – set to revolutionize solar farm cost and deployment speed.

Cambridge Energy is today announcing a strengthening of its longstanding collaboration with Release by Scatec, which is focused on advancing solar energy across the African continent.

Release by Scatec has recently secured funding from private equity investors Climate Fund Managers (CFM), the International Finance Corporation (IFC), and parent company Scatec to deploy its 300 MW pipeline with prefabricated solar across Africa.

The extended partnership also marks the launch of the newest version of Cambridge Energy’s Nomad technology – the Montaro – and will give Release by Scatec exclusive use of the product in Africa over the next 2 years.

Cambridge Energy’s Nomad technology is a world-first concept that enables solar farms to be prefabricated in controlled factory conditions – resulting in simple, quick, and cost-effective deployments at site. It is an essential component of the Release offering due to its ability to work as a single-axis solar tracker once deployed.

The Montaro is a next generation version of the Nomad and is positioned to compete on grids and mega projects, while also retaining the features that make it compelling for off-grid, mini-grid, and hybrid market segments.
