  • Technology

The Kingdom of Bahrain has launched a tender for the deployment of 100 MW of utility-scale solar, according to information given to pv magazine by Amin Al Yaquob,



CEO of the Gulf Cooperation Council’s Association for Renewable Energy & Sustainability.

A preliminary Request for Concept for the project was issued by Bahrain’s Electricity and Water Authority in March 2017 and the project was announced by the government and the kingdom’s new National Renewable Energy Action Plan in September that year.

The project will be developed by an independent power producer at the Askar landfill site, in the southern governorate of Bahrain.

Meanwhile, ME Construction News has reported three bids have already been submitted, citing Abdulhussain Mirza, the electricity and water affairs minister of Bahrain, who visited the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week taking place in the emirate.

Bahrain’s 100 MW project is part of the kingdom’s plan to bring online 255 MW of PV capacity by 2025.

 The plan is expected to be implemented through net metering, the above-mentioned tender, and a renewable energy mandate for new buildings.



The small Gulf nation is aiming to reach 700 MW of renewable energy power generation capacity by 2030 through solar, wind and waste to energy technologies.
