Botswana has cancelled a proposed 100MW solar tender, with plans to adjust the ownership of the projects behind the decision.

The Botswana Power Corporation (BPC) had originally planned to own the two 50MW plants in conjunction with a private investor. Now, the projects will be offered under new terms in a fresh tender with 100% private ownership.

Independent power producers (IPPs) will take on all responsibilities and be expected to work with local partners.

“The potential investor(s) would be required to establish partnerships with Botswana citizen companies for joint project ownership, development, implementation, operation and maintenance,” a statement by BPC confirms.

It is expected that the tender, in its new revised form, will be put to market before the end of June.
