- The BPC announced at the time that the tender will be revised as an IPP project, with investors to become 100% owners of the two plants.
“The project was nullified to allow for a fresh procurement process to be conducted with the new Terms of Reference (ToR) in line with the desired project structure,” said BPC.
The power utility said that potential investors will be expected to establish partnerships with local companies for joint project ownership, construction and O&M. The winner will be in charge of the development, permitting, financing, design, engineering, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance of the photovoltaic (PV) park.
The tender was expected to be floated by the end of June 2019. To date there has been no tender announcement.
