The African Development Bank (AfDB) is looking for consultants to carry out technical due diligence for four storage-connected solar energy projects in Mauritius.
The four projects have a combined capacity of 100 MW and will be built by independent power producers, the tender document said, but did not provide technical or financial details. Interested consultants can submit their offers until May 19.
In April, Landscope Mauritius, a state-owned real estate developer, issued a tender for 10 MW of solar capacity in La Valette, Bambous, a town on the northwest coast of Mauritius.
According to the latest statistics from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Mauritius had 110 MW of installed capacity by the end of 2022. According to IRENA, the country did not install new capacity last year.
In March 2022, the Central Electricity Board (CEB) of Mauritius issued two different tenders for the deployment of 140 MW of solar plus storage capacity. The Mauritian government has also supported distributed solar energy through net metering and rebate schemes.
