Albania seeks study of rivers’ hydropower potential

Albanian Power Corp. (KESH) invites expressions of interest from consultants to study hydropower generating potential of selected rivers. Responses are due October 22.

KESH has received a grant under the Policy and Human Resources Development fund from the Japanese government for a World Bank program on dam safety that incorporates the hydropower study. Earlier this year, a World Bank official said energy-short Albania still has undeveloped hydro potential and that the government must move quickly to implement a concession law to attract more foreign direct investment in thermal and hydro generation.

In the current solicitation, KESH seeks consultants to prepare an analysis of hydropower generation potential on selected rivers, including project definitions and pre-feasibility studies of a number of potential projects. Work is to be performed between December 2007 and May 2008.

Three hard copies or an electronic pdf file of expressions of interest and qualifications are due by noon October 22. Submissions are to be labeled �Expression of interest for consultancy services for assessment of power generation potential of selected Albanian rivers.� KESH plans to invite bids from short-listed firms.
