Construction Phases of FTSEZ

The Fetakgomo-Tubatse SEZ will cover a total area of 1 220 ha of land. Phase 1 consists of 316 ha which is reserved mainly for a mix of light and heavy industrial use and other hydrogen energy related uses, while Phases 2 and 3 will be developed in line with market demands and will include:

  • Renewable energy
  • Heavy industry
  • Additional light industry space
  • Mixed use and residential

More than six tenants have already committed to setting up operations for Phase 1 implementation in chrome-related beneficiation, hydrogen energy components assembly, electric vehicles, solar energy and pharmaceuticals.
