The African Development Fund (ADF) is helping Eritrea's government to develop a 30 MW solar plant in Dekemhare, in the central part of the African country. The ADF is currently seeking consultants for the project through a tender.
The project will includ3 an unspecified amount of battery storage and a 66 kV transmission line. The government chose the proposed location for its relatively cool temperature, the elevation, and the presence of existing infrastructure that could connect the array to the national grid. Prospective consultants have until Feb. 23 to submit their proposals.
