ARENE, Mozambique’s energy regulatory body, has revealed its choice of four preferred bidders for the development of two 30MW solar PV projects.
These projects were tendered to Independent Power Producers (IPPs) in November of the previous year and encompass the complete development, financing, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of each facility.
The chosen bidders were selected through a competitive tender with prequalification, with ARENE acting as the Procuring Authority.
The four companies shortlisted for the projects include ACWA Power, JCMPower Corporation, TotalRenewables Energies, and Voltalia SA.
Recently, Syrah Resources, a graphite mining company, has achieved complete operation of its solar and battery hybrid system at its Balama operations in Mozambique. This system comprises an 11.25 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) array, integrated with an 8.5 MW/MWh battery energy storage system (BESS).
