Gambia Sustainable Energy Project
Request for Information

The Government of the Gambia (GoTG) has received financing from the European Investment Bank (EIB) towards its Gambia Sustainable Energy Project within the Gambia Renewable Energy Framework. The Component 4 of the Framework consists of designing, supplying, installation, and operation and maintenance of on-grid/off-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems at up to 1,000 schools and 99 health facilities in the country (the Project). The preliminary calculations resulted in a wide range of systems’ sizes - from 2 kWp for schools to 100 kWp for hospitals. The identified project sites are spread all over the country with approximately 417 schools, 46 health centers and 11 hospitals already connected to the grid, but with unreliable electricity supply due to the frequent blackouts. The remaining facilities are off-grid.

EIB has selected Azorom Limited to assist GoTG in implementing this project. To assess the interest of the contractors in implementing the project, Azorom is inviting contractors to submit their interest by providing some information of their company and the works they have performed in implementing and providing operation and maintenance (O&M) services for on-grid / off-grid solar PV energy systems in the international development space.

The scope of the upcoming contract includes:

  1. Design of on-grid/off-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems to be supplied and installed.
  2. Supply and installation of the PV energy systems at their locations across the country.
