Mauritius plans 100 MW solar+storage project

Share

The AfDB has issued a tender to seek consultants to conduct technical due diligence for four solar projects to be connected to battery storage.

The four projects will have a combined capacity of 100 MW and will be constructed by independent power producers, the tender document says, without providing further technical or financial details. Interested consultants have until May 19 to submit their offers.

In April, Landscope Mauritius, a government-owned property developer, issued a tender for 10 MW of solar capacity in La Valette, Bambous, a town on the northwestern coast of Mauritius.

According to the latest statistics from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Mauritius had 110 MW of installed capacity by the end of 2022. The nation did not install any new capacity last year, according to IRENA.

In March 2022, the Central Electricity Board (CEB) of Mauritius issued two different tenders for the deployment of 140 MW of solar-plus-storage capacity. The government of Mauritius has also been supporting distributed solar through net metering and rebate schemes.
