Sonatrach, ENI get 34 bids for Algerian solar plant

Algerian state energy firm Sonatrach and Italy’s ENI have bids from 34 interna­tional firms to build a 10 mega­watt solar power plant at Bir Rebaa North (BRN) in eastern Algeria, a Sonatrach source said.
 
Major oil and gas producer Al­geria is looking to expand into solar energy as it tries to meet growing domestic energy demand and offi­cials say the North African country will soon launch a major project to build a 4,000 megawatt solar plant.
 
Those bidding for the plant at BRN include Carlo Gavazzi Im­pianti Spa, BELECTRIC GmbH, Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios SA, ENGIE Fabricom SA, and JGC Corporation, the source said.
 
There are also joint bids by Con­solidated Contractors Group with KPV Solar GmbH, and from Yingli Energy Co Ltd with China National Technical Import and Export Cor­poration (CNTIC).
 
Last year, Sonatrach and ENI signed a strategic agreement for de­veloping renewable energy projects in Algeria.
