Issue 347 - 02 Jun 2017
Botswana Power Corporation (BPC) is seeking expressions of interest from independent power producers (IPPs) to develop a 100MW solar plant in a joint venture with the utility. Bids are due by 14 June. BPC said the country’s presently available capacity averaged 260MW from the 600MW installed capacity Morupule B plant, while the 132MW Morupule A plant is undergoing refurbishment. Peak demand is 600MW and the gap is met through imports from South Africa and Mozambique, with the 90MW Orapa and 105MW Matshelagabedi emergency plants used when imports are unavailable or too expensive.
