The nation is targeting an unspecified capacity of solar PV systems to be installed on households and public facilities across several of its regions. The successful projects will be jointly financed by the World Bank and the government of Myanmar. Myanmar expects to achieve 100% electrification by 2030, with off-grid solar playing a leading role in bringing power to rural areas. Myanmar has issued an invitation for bids for the supply, installation and maintenance of 31 solar systems for households and public facilities. The deadline for bids is on September 3, at 10 am MMT (0530 CET). Myanmar’s Department of Rural Development and Ministry of Livestock and Irrigation has invited bids from companies with an average turnover of $2 million or more over the past three years and with experience in “supplying, installing, supervising, commissioning and/or maintaining off-grid solar PV systems with batteries”, gained over the last five years. Bidding will be conducted under World Bank procurement guidelines.
