Vanuatu - Second Rural Electrification Project Stage Project (English)

The objective of the Second Rural Electrification Project Stage Project is to support increased penetration of renewable energy and increased access to electricity services in the dispersed off-grid areas of Vanuatu. There are three components to the project, the first component being provision of solar home systems and micro grids systems in rural areas of Vanuatu. This component will support expansion of access to reliable electricity service in rural Vanuatu through SHS and micro grid configurations where mini grid configurations are unlikely to be economically viable and which are not earmarked for mini grids under this or other donor or government projects or are the least cost solution. SHS and micro grids will be available to rural households and public institutions. This component will target approximately 37 public institutions and 8,400 rural households, which equates to approximately 42,000 people. The second component is the Construction of Mini Grids systems in rural areas of Vanuatu. This component will support the expansion of access to reliable electricity services for rural communities through support for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of mini grid systems. The project will finance the construction of five mini grids, based on initial cost estimates. Finally, the third component is the technical assistance and project management. This component addresses three key areas of the project, the first focusing on the vendor registration model for Component one, the second focusing on owners’ engineer for component two and the third focusing on project management. In addition, there is an allowance for Government contribution (US$1.5 million ‘in kin’”) that will cover the Government of Vanuatu’s direct project related
