The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is seeking a member of the CTCN Network to prepare a feasibility study and development of an action plan for the promotion of manufacturing of components of small power wind turbines in Benin.

This  assistance  seeks  to  advise  Benin  on  the  question  whether  or  not  kick-starting  a  local  wind  manufacturing and deployment market by first analyzing feasibility of local manufacturing of equipment. Then, if the results of the feasibility study are positive, a second phase of the intervention will produce recommendations  to  Benin  as  to  how  to  create  a  manufacturing  market  as  well  as  how  to  spur  the installation  of  small  wind  turbines  through  capacity  building,  policies,  regulations,  programs,  and  other measures. The anticipated outcome is that Benin stakeholders will be informed about the potentials of local  small  wind  component  manufacturing  and  a  market  to  sell  the  produced  technology  to  generate renewable  energy  in  rural  areas  that  were  previously  lacking  reliable  energy  access.

Scope and activities:

•    A report of the feasibility study on local manufacturing of small wind technology in Benin

•    If  a  small  wind  manufacturing  and  deployment  market  is considered  feasible:  An Action  Plan  will  be developed  that  will  consist of  details  of small  wind  industry goals for the 2020 and 2030 timelines, a summary of small wind industry opportunities and pathways to fulfil  these  opportunities, and  a  high-level  plan  for  implementation  of  a pilot manufacturing  project

Complete Offer must be submitted via the UNIDO e-Procurement portal https://procurement.unido.org  by 13 April 2017, 17:00 Vienna, Austria time.

In  case  you  are  not  a  CTCN  network  member  yet,  you  may  bid  for  implementation  of  the  technical  assistance,  subject  to  the  condition  that  you  submit  your  completed  application  for  CTC Network membership before the bid closure and the same is acknowledged by the CTCN. Furthermore, the contract award – should your bid be selected – is conditional to your network membership application having been successfully approved by the Director of CTCN. Should the bidder partner with another institution to deliver the services described in these Terms of Reference, it is expected that the partner institution also joins the CTC Network.
