"Bringing power to the people of Africa"
MBHE Group is a holistic energy service company based in Centurion, South Africa. Founded in 1996, primarily as a boiler design and manufacturing company, MBHE spent several years acquiring a record of accomplishment in the Southern African sugar as well as the paper and pulp sector. MBHE has built longstanding working relationships and a respected reputation in the power generation industry through the successful implementation of several projects including the Van Eck power station in Namibia and various Tongaat and Illovo sugar mills.
In 2008, the MBHE Group received an order from the Central Energy Fund for an 8.4 Megawatt (MW) biomass power plant, a turning point in the history of the company. This paved the way for the establishment of sister company, MBHE African Power.
MBHE African Power is a renewable energy project development company focusing on the design, implementation and ownership of operational energy assets that lead to sustainability and cleaner production. These projects include technologies in biomass, biogas and solar photovoltaic and the company has now added waste-to-energy to its portfolio.
Today, following a recent consolidation, the MBHE Group consists not only of the original boiler design company and MBHE African Power for renewable energy project development but also MBHE Operations & Maintenance (O&M) which is dedicated to small-scale operations and maintenance of renewable energy assets, as well as providing technical and administrative management services on behalf of the shareholders within the various project companies. In addition, MBHE O&M offers energy audits, installation of energy monitoring systems and billing reconciliation for our clients.
MBHE Group has closely been involved in the development of a number of Renewable Energy projects in Southern Africa. With our team and experience, MBHE has been involved in major biomass-to-energy, solar photovoltaic and wind energy projects, under the renewable energy independent power producer’s procurement programme, as well as private sector embedded generation initiatives.
MBHE Environmental was established in 2014 as part of the MBHE Group, with a strong focus on evaluation and monitoring of waste streams and the management principles thereof with the view of diverting waste from landfill. These waste streams include MSW (Municipal Solid Waste), Biomass and various municipal and industrial effluents. MBHE Environmental has a clear understanding of the hierarchy of integrated waste management as the fundamental basis to every operation. Its successful implementation results in cost savings as well as a reduction in the impact that the disposal of waste has on the environment.
