A tender for the design, financing, construction and operation of the solar photovoltaic plant with a capacity of 100 MW in Navoi region of Uzbekistan was announced with the assistance of the International Finance Corporation to attract private investors.
The Project site is located approximately 30 km west of Navoi city. While the boundaries of the site are still being finalised, the site area is expected to be in the range of 250 to 300 ha to allow for significant DC oversizing. The site has good road access and is located close to the JSC Uzbekenergo 220 kV network.
Uzbekistan has local producers of both electrical equipment and electrical cabling. Although procurement from such local producers is strongly encouraged, it is not mandatory and will not be considered in the evaluation of Prequalified Bidders’ Proposals.
