The advertisement issued by the city said the project which will run as a Public Private Partnership (PPP) would entail the construction, financing, commissioning, operation and maintenance of the 25MW solar PV plant inclusive of an integration station for the municipal council of Windhoek on a BOO basis.

According to the city, the project will be built over the next three years at an estimated cost of 420 million Namibian dollars (29 million U.S. dollars).
