I would like to express something of the line:

This adds a bit of confidence, which is very welcome in this situation.

in the sense that 'confidence' is needed and/or appreciated in the given situation.

I wanted to translate the sentence literally, using the word bienvenu, but I am worried that that word might only apply in a greeting. Is that correct? How would you translate the above sentence?

    Note that "bienvenu" is exactly formed as "welcome"

Bienvenu is not restricted to greetings so would be fine here.

You might also use appréciable.
