The Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) has tendered 200MW(AC) of grid-connected solar PV projects to be developed across four locations in the country.

The solar PV projects, to be divided into four 50MW(AC) projects, will be developed on build own operate (BOO) basis near the Baraiyarhat, Chuadanga, Netrokona and Bhaluka grid substations which are all 132/33 kV.

The deadline for bid submission is 28 August 2018.

Earlier this month, Proinso UK and Dhaka-based independent power producer Joules Power Limited (JPL) said commissioning was imminent on a 28MW solar project in Bangladesh, which they claimed to be the first utility-scale PV project in the country.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is also providing a US$20 million loan and a US$25.44 million grant to support off-grid solar PV pumping for agricultural irrigation in Bangladesh, to replace expensive diesel-based systems.
