The Ministry of Energy of Ghana has invited bids for the “Design, Supply, and Installation of 35 Mini-Grids for Island/Lakeside Communities in Ghana” as part of the Ghana Mini Grid and Solar PV Net Metering Project (SREP).
The project, funded by the African Development Bank, the Climate Investment Fund, and the Swiss Government through SECO, aims to enhance energy access in rural and lakeside areas of Ghana through the deployment of mini-grids and solar PV systems.
The bidding process, conducted through Open Competitive Bidding (International), is open to eligible bidders as defined in the Bank’s Procurement Framework. Interested bidders can obtain further information and inspect the bidding documents at the Ministry of Energy during office hours.
The bidding documents can be purchased for a non-refundable fee of US$250 (for foreign bidders) or GHS2,500 (for local bidders) upon submission of a written application and payment via cash or wire transfer.
Bids must be delivered to the Ministry of Energy by November 23, 2023. Electronic bidding will not be permitted. Late bids will be rejected.
The project includes the installation of mini-grids in various regions of Ghana, with bid security amounts varying according to the lots. Successful bidders will be required to disclose beneficial ownership information as part of the contract award process.
