Seychelles opens tender for 4-MW floating solar plant


June 22 (Solar) – The Republic of the Seychelles on Thursday launched a competitive selection for a  4-MW salt-water floating solar power project in the Lagoon le Rocher.

The tender, announced by the Minister of Environment, Energy and Climate Change Wallace Cosgrow, is for the right to develop, finance, own and operate the specific photovoltaic (PV) array. It will be backed by the African Legal Support Facility (ALSF), an organisation hosted by the African Development Bank (AFDB), the latter said in a press release.

The Seychelles Energy Commission (SEC) will be conducting the selection process, while the Public Utility Corporation (PUC) will be the eventual off-taker, according to an earlier announcement related to the competition.

The floating solar plant will be the first of its kind in Africa and the first floating PV facility in the world installed in a salt-water reservoir, AFDB said.
