Joint Request for Qualifications and Request For Proposal for Project ‘Light up Kwara’ (LUK) – Independent Power Plant (IPP) Project

(1) Introduction

Kwara State has a population of approximately 3 million people, and limited power to satisfy its governance, social obligations, residents’ households, business and industrial needs. As part of its obligation, the Kwara State Government (“KWSG”) aims to improve standards of living and facilitate economic value addition; none of which would be cost effective, sustainable or even possible without affordable and stable power.

Project Light Up Kwara (“LUK”) is therefore the KWSG’s program to the address the power shortages through the delivery of independent power of a minimum 100 mega watt (MW) through any viable fuel source, under a Joint Venture(“JV”) or Build-Own-Operate(“BOO”) structure.

Consequently, the KWSG, via its Public Private Partnership (PPP) Bureau (herein “KP3 Bureau”) seeks partnership with power developers of various kinds to meet power shortages through the availability and operations of Independent Power Plants (“IPPs”) in Kwara State (“Kwara”).

This is an open Request for Proposal (“RFP”) wherein the KP3 Bureau is soliciting joint commercial and technical proposals, including qualifications statement (the “Proposal”), from qualified firms and consortium that are willing and capable to deliver the solutions from project development all the way through to power availability to the end user(s). Responses to this RFP will be written proposals from qualified firms and consortia that may include subcontractors under the proposed partnership.

(2)     Background Summary

Businesses domiciled in and residents of Kwara State require about 500 Mega Watts (MW) installed capacity to meet existing electricity power requirement from the present 6,000MW national installed generating capacity. Based on projections from the Road Map to Power Sector Reform 2010 and recently, projections from the Power Advisory Team, it has become increasingly clearer that a joint participation by the public and private sectors would be required if Nigeria is to achieve the target generation by 2018.

Given the lead-time necessary to develop power infrastructure projects, KP3 Bureau finds it imperative to solicit for full cycle partnerships from capable firms and consortia to agree under bankable terms, the modalities for delivery the necessary power assets and services. It is to commence the initial feasibility study leading to the eventual development and improvement of current generation capacity.

(3)     Submissions Process

The submissions process will be conducted in 3 steps, such that only firms/consortia shortlisted after the evaluation of the preceding step will be allowed to move forward to the next.

(4)     Next Steps

Interested Firm(s)/Consortium (ia) should review the full Joint RFP/RFQ on the project page on the KP3 Bureau website (at for further details on Proposed Scope of Development and the submission requirements.

The final deadline for Step 1 submissions is 4:00 PM on Thursda26th of November, 2015. Only complete proposals submitted by the stipulated deadline shall be evaluated.



Request for Expression of Interest for Solar Street Lightening of Identified Locations Within Ilorin Metropolis and Major Local Government Areas Axis of Kwara State

(1)     Introduction and Background

Kwara State is rapidly growing not only in population but also in economic activities. This growth goes hand in hand with the development of required infrastructure such as roads and street lights to facilitate movement and circulation within the State and also to other parts of the country. In addition to ensuring the security of lives and property of its citizens, development of these infrastructures will also make different businesses viable and productive hence contributing to the improvement of living standards of the citizens of Kwara State.

Whilst the State is making tremendous effort in improving road network, it is the intention of the Kwara State Government to make the streetlight sub sector developed and self-sustaining through improvement of its management especially by using the energy efficient methods.

Given the above context, the KWSG, via its Public Private Partnership (PPP) Bureau (herein “KP3 Bureau”) invites Expression of Interest from private companies for the concession and the operation and maintenance of its streetlight infrastructure (existing and new assets) via a Public Private Partnership Model.

(2)     Current Status

The State is evidently under-lit. Taking the Ilorin metropolis as an example, of the 26 major roads networks with streetlights assets covering 74.2 km, assets covering only 21.6 km (29.1%) are working partially or satisfactorily. Most of the areas outside the Ilorin Metropolis are worse lit.

Taking this further, a thorough environmental scan was conducted to determine the number of functioning and non-functioning poles, identify new locations where street lights are to be deployed, existing street lights poles, most effective model of sustainability of asset etc.

The outcome of the environmental scan was the development of a Street light PPP Concept Note and the conclusion for the project to be implemented through a 2-step Concession: (Finance-Build/Renovate & Operation and Management).

(3)     Proposed Scope of Development

KWSG’s preferred solution is a solar-powered street lighting system. The choice of solar energy for this project is based on long term outlook for the sake of the environment and the future budgetary impacts.

(4)     Next Steps

Interested Firm(s)/Consortium (ia) should review the full EOI on the project page on the KP3 Bureau website (at for further details on Proposed Scope of Development and the submission requirements.

The final deadline for Step 1 submissions no later than Thursday 26th of November, 2015. Only complete proposals submitted by the stipulated deadline shall be evaluated.
