Preparation of concept note and and ToR for a feasibility study for Assela II Wind Farm Project in Ethiopia

PEM is currently preparing a concept note and and ToR for a feasibility study for Assela II Wind Farm Project in Ethiopia. Danida Sustainable Infrastructure Finance (DSIF) has received a request from the Minstry of Finance and Economic Cooperation (MOFEC) for the financing of one more 100 MW wind farm, planned to be constructed close to the ongoing project in Iteya and denominated 'Assela 2 Wind Power Project'. At present only a prefeasibility study exists, elaborated in 2013 by Hydrochina Corporation, but a more through feasibility study was elaborated for the Assela Wind Farm Project in 2017 by the German consultant Lahmeyer International. As the two wind farms projects are adjacent and both are located on the Rift Valley Ridge, it is expected that the prefeasibility study can be upgraded relatively quickly to a proper feasibility study which can form basis for a decision by EEP and DSIF whether to bring the project forward.
