TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE TO EDM FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECTS

CONSULTING SERVICES
Expression of interest

1. The Government of Mozambique has received a financing from the French Development Agency (AFD), under delegation of the European Union - Africa Infrastructure Trust Fund. The funds were on-granted to Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM), which intends to use part of the funds thereof for payments under the following project: Technical Assistance to EDM to support the development of large renewable energy generation projects through a public auction process.

2. The mission of the consultant shall consist of a four (4) years Technical Assistance (TA) based in EDM in full time and/or part time that will be, essentially, in charge of the preparation and the implementation phase of the following frameworks:

• Technical: the TA will support EDM in the procurement process of various technical studies aiming at identifying potential renewable energy generation projects to be developed in the future. It will ensure good coordination of these different activities within EDM together with the Project Management Unit (PMU) and assess with the PMU the actions to be undertaken for the good implementation of the project thereafter. It will also support EDM during the actual auction process through activities such as bid assessment, etc. It will have to liaise with the relevant Mozambican institutions involved in the project (energy regulator, Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy, etc.) during the project life through the creation and coordination of a Steering Committee;
• Legal: the TA will be in charge of setting up an auction scheme compliant with the Mozambican regulation and governance, and their evolution in a foreseeable future.
• Financial: the TA will investigate potential financial schemes such as Partial risk Guarantee mechanism that could help mitigating financial risks of the project and lower associated costs.
• Capacity building: the TA will identify training activities that EDM, Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy or CNELEC/ARENE (the Mozambican energy sector regulator) staff could benefit from in the framework of the project.

3. It is anticipated that some of the activities will be performed by the TA while others will be performed through external consultancy. The TA could be composed of several experts for each one of the main areas of expertise identified required (namely: technical, financial and legal). The project duration is four (4) years, and the experts are expected to be fully dedicated to project at least during the first 1-2 years of the project, and could intervene on a part-time basis up to you end. They will be part of the PMU to be appointed prior to the beginning of the project.

Electricidade de Moçambique hereby invites consultants to show their interest in delivering the services described above.

4. In order to confirm their eligibility for AFD’s financing, consultants should submit in their expression of interest a duly signed Statement of Integrity (appended to this letter). Consultants can find the Statement of Integrity in the application for the contract described above, on the website: afd.dgmarket.com

Interested consultants must provide information evidencing that they are qualified and experienced to perform those services. For that purpose, documented evidence of recent and similar services shall be submitted.

 the technical area and expertise (technical, legal and financial)
 the location (in the Region and in the Client’s language)
