In line with the Algerian Government plan to deploy 22 GW of renewable energy production capacity by 2030, the Algerian Electricity and Gas Regulation Commission has issued a tender for the construction of several photovoltaic (PV) power plants in the south-west of Algeria, of a combined capacity of 150 MW (10 MW caps/plant), on 18 November 2018.

The tender capacity will be divided into 50 MW in the Ghardaia region, 50 MW in the Biskra region, 30 MW in the Ouargla region, and 20 MW in the El Oued region. The plants must be developed on a Build-Own-Operation (BOO) basis and the successful bidders will be awarded a 20-year PPA.

The tender is open to public and private local entities (natural or legal persons) who may participate individually, in partnership or as a jointly and severally liable consortium. However, bidders who submit, or participate in more than one offer (individually or in a consortium), will cause all the offers in which they have participated to be disqualified.

International investors may also participate in partnership with local entities on the 51/49 shareholding threshold basis, in compliance with the Algerian corporate and investment legal framework.

The tender provides for local products requirements. As such, modules, mounting structures and cables must be procured by the bidders locally. In fact, mono PERC, bifacial panels glass, junction boxes, aluminium frames and transparent films are being or will be manufactured locally. However, inverters can be imported.

Additionally, the bids must include a levelized cost of energy analysis on a DZD/KWH basis.

Bidding technical and financial requirements are detailed in the tender Specification, which is available at the Electricity and Gaz Engineering Company (CEEG).

Bidders are invited to present their technical and financial offers along with the tender guarantee of around USD 150,000, before the latest date for submission on 19 February 2019.
