In order to create income and ensure future sustainability, the Bethal Business and Community Development Centre (BBCDC), with funding and support from SOLTRAIN, has established a solar thermal company in Mohale’s Hoek and has extended its existing workshop.

The workshop is equipped with the necessary tools for the local assembly of solar thermal systems and the welding of stands.

After a diligent procurement exercise, Adendorff Machinery Mart in Bloemfontein was selected as the preferred supplier of the tools and equipment needed for the new venture due to its wide range of stock and proximity to BBCDC.
