GreenCo Power Services, the subsidiary of Africa GreenCo Group, is launching the pre-qualification process for the selection of an independent power producer (IPP).
The company selected at the end of the process will build a solar photovoltaic power plant with a capacity ranging from 10 to 40 MWp, in Zambia.
Interested IPPs have until March 21st, 2021 to apply.
The power plant is a pilot project under Zambia’s new electricity generation and marketing legislation. Africa GreenCo’s subsidiary received the go-ahead by the authorities to play a major role in Zambia’s electricity sector, along with the state-owned Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation (ZESCO).
Unlike ZESCO, which distributes electricity to households, GreenCo will sell its output to industrial and commercial customers.
