Background

The request for qualification (“RFQ”) will be launched by the Ministry of Petroleum Energy and Renewable Energy (“MPERE”) together with IFC Advisory as part of the scaling solar program, a World Bank initiative that aims to create a viable market for solar power in each client country (“Scaling Solar”).

Scaling Solar Round 1

The RFQ is for a single grid connected solar PV plant with a capacity of approximately 50 MW located in Grou Banda, on the outskirts of the capital city of Niamey (the “Project”).

The first step in the Scaling Solar process is to prequalify bidders through a submission by each interested party with the experience, expertise and financial resources required to design, finance, construct and operate a grid-connected solar PV plant in accordance with the RFQ.

Pre-qualified bidders will then be invited to submit their bid in accordance with the subsequent tender document. Interested candidates will be able to obtain the RFQ for a fee of approximately USD905.

The deadline for submission is no later than 9:00 am GMT on 22 November 2021.

Similar ‘scaling solar’ projects have been successfully constructed in Senegal and Zambia, with IFC Advisory actively engaged in delivering similar projects in Afghanistan, Cote D’Ivoire, Togo, Madagascar and Uzbekistan.
