The MIREME has confirmed that the tender outcome for the construction of the 40MW Dondo solar PV plant will be announced at the end of January 2022.
“We have our team working to ensure the speed and all the necessary transparency in this process, and I believe that we will have the work completed by the end of January at the latest,” the MIREME source said under anonymity.
PROLER is part of the “Energy for All” program, which aims to provide universal access to energy for all Mozambicans by 2030, as well as the diversification of the energy matrix through sustainable sources with a focus on the implementation of a portfolio of electricity generation projects using renewable energies, reducing carbon emissions in the period 2020-2030.
In addition to the Dondo plant, the government also plans to implement other projects in Tete, Niassa and Inhambane which will have a combined total of 120MW.
