Tender - 4MW Floating PV IPP in Seychelles

 

In the context of the Africa Energy Forum (AEF) held in Mauritius, HE Wallace Cosgrow, Minister of Environment, Energy and Climate Change of Seychelles has announced the launch of the tender of the right to develop, finance, own and operate a 4MW floating grid-connected solar PV plant in the Lagoon le Rocher, Mahé. The tender and project will represent a path-breaking opportunity for the eventual successful bidder as it will be the first utility-scale floating solar PV project in all of Africa. It will be one of the first salt-water floating solar PV plants in the world. This innovative project reflects the Government of Seychelles commitment to climate change action and renewable energy development. Marine floating PV technology has significant implications for island nations and other land-scarce regions that aim to utilize renewable energy. This project aims to reduce Seychelles’ reliance on imported diesel fuel, and instead harness affordable, clean and local energy resources. The project is supported by the Clinton Foundation and the African Legal Support Facility with Trinity International LLP and Multiconsult serving as the transaction and tender advisors.
