IFC has been retained as lead transaction advisor by the Government of Kosovo to procure the development, construction and operation and maintenance of 50 MW of utility-scale solar PV power on a PPP basis (the Project). As such, IFC is procuring a technical, environmental and social consulting firm (or consortium) to advise on the Project. The assignment will be split in to several phases and is expected to include: initial assessment of the potential site; review of grid code and development of the PPA technical limits schedule; detailed site studies, including ground investigations, grid integration studies and E&S scoping; and support to the tender process (e.g. tailoring of technical specs, prequalification evaluation, bid evaluation). The Project may also include an element of battery storage. Engineering firms should consider partnering with E&S firms to strengthen their E&S offering. Use of local partners for ground investigations and local E&S expertise is also recommended.
