Namibia launches a tender for a 70 MW solar power plant



Namibian energy company NamPower is looking for an engineering, procurement and construction contractor to build a solar power plant in Rosh Pinah, a southern mining town. The project was originally planned for the production of wind power.

NamPower is looking for EPC contractors for the project. Interested developers can submit their proposals until August 18.

The project was originally planned for wind power, and its planned output is 40 MW. Local media reported that the wind project was scrapped due to lower than expected wind resources in the Rosh Pinah area.

NamPower aims to install 220 MW of renewable capacity, including 110 MW of solar.

According to recent statistics from the International Renewable Energy Agency, Namibia had approximately 176 MW of installed solar energy capacity at the end of 2020.
