Gas Holdco

South Africa Business services

We are invested in Gas Holdco through Pembani Remgro Infrastructure Mauritius Fund I LP, which is managed by Pembani Remgro MU GP Limited.

We do not hold direct relationships with the companies that investment funds invest in. Instead, we hold relationships directly with the fund. When investing through investment funds, British International Investment takes an active role as a limited partner to the fund, working with the fund manager to ensure best practices, including in environment, social and governance matters, and investment management oversight.

This investment was made when British International Investment was named CDC Group.

Gas Holdco is the holding company of three special purpose vehicles established solely for the implementation of three 10-year take-or-pay gas transportation agreements entered into with a large South African industrial manufacturer. The special purpose vehicles will construct and operate the gas pipelines to connect manufacturing plants to a gas transmission pipeline.
