June 8 - A Partnership between The Malilangwe Trust and Sustainable Agriculture Technology, two nonprofit organisations working in Zimbabwe, is pursuing the implementation of a 4.5MW photovoltaic power project. The Partners are gathering Expressions of Interest (EoIs) for a technical partner to conduct the detailed Design, Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Testing and Implementation of the project.

The project will be realised in three (3) phases as follows:

1. 400 kWp Solar Array with a 560 kWp Tesla Li-Ion Powerpack. Step up transformer with all connections and 33kV feeder line.

2. 1,100 kWp Solar Array

3. 3,000 kWp Solar Array with an interconnection to the National Grid

Phases One and Two are designed to provide power to a local private property through a Private Power Purchase Agreement. Phase Three will feed electricity into the National Grid through a Power Purchase Agreement signed with the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority.

The project is situated in the South East of Zimbabwe, 30km from the town of Chiredzi.

Whilst financing for all three phases has been secured in full for the implementation of the project, there is also an option for the technical partner to invest through a Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (BOOT) type agreement, with the transfer taking place after 15 years. In Phases 1 and 2 there is an option for a 47% Stake in the BOOT agreement and in Phase 3 there is an option to take a 33.3% stake in the BOOT agreement.

Companies interested in participating in the selection process for a suitable technical partner should send their EoIs, accompanied by a Company Profile and list of recent projects of similar type, to the following emails:

The deadline for sending the Expression of Interest is June 30, 2021.
