Request for Proposals: Papagaio Mini Hydro Project – São Tomé and Príncipe

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +
  • The African island of São Tomé and Príncipe has a population of 211000 and lies close to the equator, west of Gabon.
  • The small island has an electricity access rate of about 70%, with its power generation mix being predominantly fossil fuels and the balance from hydro.
  • Out of the 35MW-installed capacity, only 58% is available to the grid due to ageing generation assets and lack of maintenance.

The UNDP and the AfDB are cooperating in an exciting project on the island of São Tomé and Príncipe for the appointment of services from a consulting firm specialising in the development of a small hydro-power plant (SHHP). The job entails designing a new mini hydro plant at the site of an old existing SHHP.

Procurement process is being conducted through the online tendering system of UNDP. Bidders who wish to submit an offer must be registered in the system. Link to the tender HERE

 Good luck!

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
