Synergy Consulting has been requested by the EBRD to support in preparing and implementing the first site-specific wind auction for 50-150 MW wind power project(s) (“the tender” or “the auction”). This entails: (i) identifying, selecting and preparing suitable site(s) for wind power project(s); (ii) developing and amending associated regulatory documentation and rules for the auction; and (iii) providing support for implementing the auction up to the project financial closure.
The project includes the following tasks:
The project included the construction of the 400 kV transmission line connecting Vulcanesti Substation to Chisinau Substation and the upgrade of the Chisinau and Vulcanesti Substations.
The project is part of the overall framework contract "Western Balkans Investment Framework (WBIF) - Infrastructure Project Facility - Technical Assistance 7 (IPF 7), Infrastructures: Energy, Environment, Transport and Social which has been awarded to a consortium of 9 European firms under the leadership of Hill International.
The WAPP and the Governments of Mali and Burkina Faso are looking for a Consultant to carry out two technical and financial feasibility studies based on the “Plug & Play” solar park concept in Burkina Faso and Mali. These studies will also aim at defining the optimal strategy for the phasing of the construction of the solar parks with the consideration of storage batteries and their connection to the transmission network.
The GIZ Programme “Promotion of Electrification through Renewable Energies Programme” (PERER) aims to improve the framework conditions and regulations for private and public investment in electrification through renewable energy.
The Government of the Republic of Zimbabwe (GoZ) has received Grant funding from the African Development Fund (ADF) and intends to apply part of the proceeds of this Grant to eligible payments under the contract for preparing Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) package reports for the following projects:
An Addis Ababa Distribution Master Plan (AADMP) has been elaborated which identified a number of rehabilitation, short-term and medium-term subprojects to be undertaken until 2022 and 2034. These subprojects are summarised in the "Addis Ababa Transmission & Distribution System Rehabilitation & Upgrading Project (AATDRUP)". They have been allocated into 4 suitable contract packages.
The project consists of the construction of one 225 kV HV line between Nouakchott and Zouerate and the associated substations. It comprises two lots:
Lot 1: Electric Lines
The general objective of this project is the monitoring and control of costs, of the quality and the time schedule of implementation works. The project includes all site works for the implementation of the National Dispatching Centre. Following EDG's long-term master plan, the National Dispatching Centre shall integrate transmission lines of the 60 and 110 kV level. The project has been interrupted due to the Ebola epidemic and new financing.
The objective of the project is to upgrade and expand distribution and transmission infrastructure for increased access to energy, improved electricity services for the rural population and to contribute to primary energy savings.
The tentative scope of the project is the following:
The project concept design prepared by the Project Executing Agency EVN provides for 200 MWp of solar generation in three phases. The Government of Vietnam has requested financing support from German Financial Cooperation via KfW.
Phase 1 provides for 50 MWp, including DC to 22 kV AC invertors, a control building, access roads and a new 2 x 125 MVA 220/22 step-up substation to interconnect with EVN´s existing 220 kV double circuit transmission line.
In order to increase the effective installed generating capacity in Benin, a program has been established to attract the participation of Independent Power Producers (IPPs) to develop, design, construct, operate and maintain solar photovoltaic (PV) generation facilities in the country. The program includes the development of an IPP institutional framework and standard forms of contract as well as the execution of a competitive bidding process for GoB.
NOOR Midelt ("NOORM") is the second solar power complex to be developed in the framework of Morocco's NOOR Solar Plan. It covers an area of about 2,400 hectares and is located some 25 km northeast of the city of Midelt. The total capacity shall be between 800-1600 MW, and the plant will comprise different CSP and PV technologies.
The project covers the development of one or more projects under an independent power production (IPP) scheme. The pertinent consulting services are the following:
The overall purpose of the project is the reinforcement and rehabilitation of the existing electricity distribution system in and around Cotonou and in the regional cities of Parakou, Natitingou, Djougou, and Porto Novo, including conducting the Environmental and Social Assessments (ESIAs) for this work. Works are divided into three activities and include inter alia the following technical measures:
