June 7 (Bloomberg) -- Scatec Solar, a Norwegian solar developer in which Japanese trading company Itochu Corp. has a stake, will sell solar power for 20 years to Eskom Holdings SOC, the South African state-owned utility.

Scatec is building a plant in Linde in the Northern Cape province and another in Dreunberg in Eastern Cape, which will have a combined capacity of 115 megawatts, Daisuke Soda, an Itochu spokesman, said by phone today.

Itochu has a 37.5 percent stake in Scatec Solar, while Scatec AS has a majority stake, he said.
