Tender launch soon for Sierra Leone’s Bumbuna
Joule Africa plans to release tender documents later this year for the second phase of the Bumbuna hydro project. The US Joule Investments Group subsidiary told African Energy six companies had pre-qualified for the project and had confirmed they planned to bid. Tender documents are awaiting government approval. Joule hopes to bring the extension on stream in 2017-18, depending on when the project reaches financial close. Energy from Bumbuna will be sold to a central state-owned buyer.
