Togo to acquire 314 solar kits to power health centers


The Togolese agency for rural electrification and renewables (AT2ER) seeks to acquire and set up 314 PV solar panels in various regions of the country. The equipment will power health centers.

In this framework, the AT2R launched an international call to select firms that will provide and install the equipment. In detail, 156 solar kits should be set up in the Maritime and Plateaux regions whereas 149 kits will be set up in the Central region, the Kara region, and the Savannas region.

The acquisitions fall under the PRAVOST, the project supporting the social component of the CiZo rural electrification project. This project is financed by the African Development Bank (AfDB).

The works will be carried out in two phases. The first includes the acquisition and installation of the kits using the AfDB’s funds. And the second phase, financed by the State, covers their maintenance for five years.

The projected timeframe for the first phase is 14 months. Firms interested in the project should submit their bids latest by November 6, 2020, at 10am.
