China Seeks Wind and PV Suppliers

The government of the People’s Republic of China is looking for companies to install windfarms and solar PV systems.

BEIJING, China, CN, 2001-05-28 [SolarAccess.com] The government of the People’s Republic of China is looking for companies to install windfarms and solar PV systems. The government has applied for a loan of US$16 million from the International Bank for Reconstruction & Development (IBRD) and a grant of US$27 million from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The monies would go toward the cost of the Renewable Energy Development Project, and both the loan and the grant proceeds would be used to purchase goods and services. The projects include development of 20 MW of windfarms at two sites in Shanghai province, including related technical assistance activities, and support to photovoltaic companies that will market and maintain 10 Mwp of PV systems in six northwestern provinces and autonomous regions. A component for technology development would support, on a cost-shared and competitive basis, improved quality and cost reduction of locally manufactured PV and PV hybrid technologies and components where China has demonstrated cost advantages. The procurement notice will be issued in June, and the notice supersedes one published in the United Nations Development Business newsletter in August 1998. The windfarm component will include both goods and consulting services, while consulting services and limited procurement of goods will be demanded in the PV component. Contracts financed by the loan and grant will be conducted through World Bank procedures and bidding is open to all bidders from eligible source countries. Eligible bidders who wish to receive an invitation to pre-qualify or to bid are encouraged to contact
