Description: The World Bank Group’s Scaling Solar program aims to accelerate the roll out of competitively priced, utility-scale solar photovoltaic power in Sub-Saharan Africa (see http://www.scalingsolar.org). The template Scaling Solar power purchase agreement (PPA) requires an Independent Engineer to act as an impartial technical expert for the two main PPA parties (the Purchaser and the Seller). The role of the IE is adjusted depending on the requirements of each transaction but it would normally include tasks such as: – monitoring progress in the implementation of the project – reviewing proposed commissioning procedures – witnessing completion and performance tests A shortlist of 4 potential IEs is included in each Scaling Solar PPA. Firms with relevant expertise are invited to submit EOIs to be considered for inclusion on future IE shortlists. Selected firms will be contacted to confirm their willingness to be included in specific transaction shortlists in due course. N.B. This selection is to identify a register of potential IE firms to be included on transaction-specific shortlists only.
