Ethiopian Electric Power (EEP) has invited expressions of interest for a developer or developer consortium to carry out studies, design, build, operate and own a solar project to sell electricity to EEP under a long-term power purchase agreement. The project is located at Metehara, 130km east of Addis Ababa, at an altitude of 910-920 metres, near the main local highway and with “good proximity” to the transmission grid. Prequalification criteria include having worked on at least two minimum 20MW solar IPPs, with at least one in commercial operation. Bidders must show they have strong credit backing, and can directly or indirectly arrange financing and security.
