Niger opens up RfQ for 50-MW solar project
- The government of Niger has released a Request for Qualification (RfQ) as part of a tender for the building and construction of a 50-MW solar park.
The solar (PV) park is prepared to be installed in the Gorou Banda plateau, on the outskirts of Niamey, the country's capital, the Ministry of Petroleum, Energy as well as Renewable Energy announced. Its partner in the procurement process will certainly be the International Finance Corp (IFC), which will provide advising solutions.
The project will certainly be funded under the Scaling Solar programme, which supports grid-tied solar PV power in arising markets.
Interested events will have the ability to submit propositions by November 22. Pre-qualified prospective buyers will be welcomed to take part in the next stage of the tender-- a Request for Proposals (RfP). Winners will certainly be tasked with the style, funding, building and operation of the solar ranch under a 25-year agreement.
The African country has actually set an objective of sourcing 30% of its total power from sustainable resources by 2035.
