Greater Banjul


The World Bank issued a request for expressions of interest to select consultancy providers for a PV project Gambia’s National Water and Electricity Company Limited utility is planning to develop in the Greater Banjul area, in the western part of the country.

The contract includes the management and supervision of the solar plant, a 132 kV transmission line and substations, and a SCADA/EMS system.

According to a separate World Bank document, the solar project is expected to have a capacity of 10-20 MW, and to potentially include a battery electricity storage system to adapt output to demand and minimize grid absorption concerns. The project may be configured as a single plant in the Brikama area or as 3-5 smaller plants in the Greater Banjul area, with the same total capacity.
