Wallace Cosgrow, Seychelles’ Minister of Environment, Energy and Climate Change, has launched a tender for the right to develop, finance, own and operate a 4MW floating PV project in le Rocher Lagoon, Mahé.

The tender will be supported by the African Legal Support Facility (ALSF), and was issued within the context of the Africa Energy Forum, held in Mauritius.

The Seychelles Solar PV Project will be the first of its kind in Africa, and one of the first salt-water floating solar PV plants in the world. The installation has the potential to be replicated elsewhere as a viable renewable-energy solution across other bodies of water.
