The solar facility will sell power to the local grid at around US$0.04/kWh. The project is part of Armenia’s six-year $58 million solar program.
Work is heating up on 10 MW of solar PV plants in Armenia, which were commissioned under a special tariff announced in December 2016. Three MW have already been commissioned, with the rest scheduled for completion in 2018. Additional utility-scale quotas are also set to be published next year.
Armenia’s fledgling solar industry has received a boost with the installation of another 1 MW PV plant, by Arpi Solar. The company is due to start work on another 55 MW “very soon”.
The Armenian government introduced a special tariff for PV projects up to 1 MW in late 2016.
Through the tender, the Armenian government will build the country’s first large-scale PV plant as part of its six-year $58 million solar program.
The tendered 55 MW solar plant is part of the country’s six-year $58 million solar program.
Modules manufactured at the facility will be sold under the brand Solaron. The facility will be owned and operated by local company Profpanel LLC.
All pre-qualified bidders are invited to submit project proposals by June 16. The project is part of 110 MW pipeline that the government is supporting through a recently created ad hoc commission.
The Armenian Ministry of Energy Infrastructure and Natural Resources has prequalified ten companies in the preliminary phase of the tender for the project, which will be located in Masrik, Gegharkunik province, in the eastern part of Armenia.
The Armenian government has granted exemption from customs duties for the first time to local developer Investment Media Group. The measure is intended to support the implementation of the country’s $58 million solar program.
