Guinea-Bissau launched a call for tenders for the installation of 22 MW of solar power plants for the country. This tender launch comes through the African Biofuel and Renewable Energy Co., an organization that promotes the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency on the continent.
This call for tenders includes the construction of a 20 MW power plant in Gardete, near the capital Bissau. Once completed, this plant will supply its production to the National Electric Company (EAGB), under a power purchase agreement. The project also includes the establishment of two mini hybrid solar power plants of 1 MW each, in the localities of Gabu and Canchungo.
Developers interested in the realization of these plants have until April 10 to submit their offers. This project is supported by the West African Development Bank, which in September 2017 allocated $42.9 million in loan financing.
