On Saturday, the Botswana Power Corporation (BPC) announced that it has cancelled a tender for the construction of a 100MW solar power plant.

The utility noted that it plans to reissue the tender to make the project fully privately owned, Reuters reported.

According to a statement issued by BPC: “The project which was initially structured as a joint venture between BPC and private producers will now be implemented through independent power producers, meaning it will be 100% privately owned.”

“A new tender is anticipated to be floated by end of June 2019,” said the BPC.

According to Reuters, the tender in the southern African country had received 166 bids from both local and international power producers. Read more: India: Auction cancellation of PV projects in need for policy re-thinking
