The Ministry of Energy of Mongolia has launched the bidding process for the engineering, procurement, and construction of a 10 MW solar power project at Moron in Mongolia. The bids are to be submitted by October 20, 2021.
The development of the SPP is included in the Upscaling Renewable Energy Sector Project, which is being co-managed by the Government of Mongolia and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The project is aimed at deploying 40.5 MW of solar and wind capacity in the country’s western and Altai-Uliastai regions.
In November 2020, the Ministry launched another 10 MW EPC tender for a solar power plant in the Altai region.
Earlier, ADB had approved a $100 million loan to help expand its supply of renewable energy in Mongolia through a 125 MW advanced battery energy storage system that will be owned and operated by the National Power Transmission Grid. On successful completion in 2024, the project will supply 44 gigawatt-hours of clean peaking power annually and support the integration of an additional 859 gigawatt-hours of renewable electricity into the CES grid annually.
