Open Request for Expressions of Interest for a 10MW Wind IPP project in Cabo Verde


The Republic of Cabo Verde, represented by the Direção Nacional de Indústria, Comércio e Energia (DNICE) launched in December 2018 an International Open Competitive Bidding Process mobilizing private sector developers, consortiums or joint ventures to design, engineer, construct, commission, finance, own, operate and maintain a 10 MW Wind Power Plant as IPP (the “project) under a BOO (Build, Own, Operate) scheme in Achada Mostarda, municipality of São Domingos Santiago Island.

DNICE is establishing a wind measurement mast at the site which will provide wind measurement data starting at the latest from March 2019.

The Project will be implemented through the award of an implementation agreement between the Government of Cabo Verde, and a company to be established under the Laws of Cabo Verde (the “Project Company”). A 20 - year power - purchase agreement (the “PPA”) will be established between the Project Company and the Concessionaire of Transmission and Distribution Grid being the sole Off-taker of the electrical energy generated and delivered by the Project.
