1. On September 30, 2020, the Government of Mozambique launched Programa de Promoção de Leilões de Energias Renováveis (Promotion of Renewable Energy Auction Programme or PROLER), which will contribute to the increase of power generation capacity and to the diversification of energy sources, and give priority to competitive and transparent tender procedures for the selection of private investors with the required level of technical and financial capacities and interest in the development of projects of renewable energy generation, leading to the choice of least-cost solutions for customers.
2. The Government of Mozambique has received funds from the European Union (EU) through Agence Française de Développement (French Development Agency) to support the PROLER Pro¬gram which aims at selecting Independent Power Producers (IPPs) for solar photovoltaic and wind projects with a total capacity of around 120 MW.
3. In order to select experienced and qualified private investors to develop, finance, design, construct, operate and maintain two solar photovoltaic power plants, one in Manje (30MWac), Province of Tete, and one in Chimbunila (30MWac), Province of Niassa, (each of which is considered a “Lot” and both constitute the “Project”), the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy of Mozambique (MIREME), trough the Energy Regulatory Authority (ARENE), now invites Applicants meeting the prequalification criteria detailed in the Prequalification Documents to submit their Applications.
