Bahrain welcomes bids for 72 MW solar project – The North Africa Post
Trade Arabia reports that Bahrain has opened its tendering process for a 20-year contract to local or international bidders to construct, own, operate and maintain grid-tied solar PV power panels with a minimum of 72 MWac in multiple locations in Sakhir, south-east of the kingdom.
The solar panels are to be built on the rooftops, car park shades, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, and on the ground of these organizations’ facilities, the ministry Electricity and Water Affairs said in a statement.
The requirements state that bidders must be actively involved in the business of solar photovoltaic energy and have successfully commissioned at most 10 grid-tied PV projects (of which at least five are solar PV parking projects).
Equally, bidders should be commissioned in at least 40 MWac grid-tied solar PV projects in any country globally in the last three years (2019 – 2021).
The kingdom’s Economic Recovery Plan catalyzes over $30 billion of investments in strategic projects, creating new investment opportunities in infrastructure and priority sectors across the Kingdom, the media says.
