Myanmar sets July deadline for 1GW PV solar programme

Myanmar's Ministry of Electricity & Energy is seeking private developers to build and operate up to 1GW of photovoltaic solar capacity at up to 30 sites around the country. The solar plants will be developed under build-own-operate (BOO) contracts


Myanmar’s Ministry of Electricity and Energy subsidiary Electric Power Generation Enterprise (EPGE) has invited developers to submit proposals for a programme to develop photovoltaic (IPV) several solar plants with a combined total capacity of 1GW.

The projects will be developed under the independent power producer (IPP) model through build-own-operate (BOO) contracts. Up to 30 solar plants with capacities of between 30MW to 40MW are expected to be developed under the programme.

The PV solar IPPs will have a concession period of twenty years.

The client had set an initial bid submission date of 18 June, but has moved the bid deadline to 20 July to allow for the disruption caused by the Covid-19 outbreak.

By the end of 2019, Myanmar had 88MW of installed PV solar capacity.
