Dam, tunnel, supervision sought for 300-MW Alto Piura in Peru

The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) seeks bids for construction of a dam and tunnel and, in a separate solicitation, bids for supervision of that work, at the proposed 300-MW Alto Piura hydroelectric project in Peru’s Piura and Cajamarca departments. Bids are due October 9, 2009.

Piura and UNOPS agreed in April to cooperate in development of the first-phase irrigation works of Alto Piura. (HydroWorld 4/20/09) The irrigation works are to entail a dam, channeling works, and distribution infrastructure to transfer water from the Huancabamba River in northwestern Peru for irrigation of between 30,000 and 50,000 hectares.

The phase 2 hydropower component, to include two 150-MW power plants, later is to be built and operated by the private sector under a concession.

UNOPS seeks bids to build a small dam and a tunnel across the Andes Mountains to carry irrigation water. In a separate solicitation, it seeks bids to supervise the work.

Bids for both solicitations are due at noon October 9. For information, contact Oficina de UNOPS en Lima, Los Sauces 379, San Isidro, Lima, Peru; (511) 708-9999 extension 108; Fax: (511) 708-9910; E-mail: karinar@unops.org; Internet: www.unops.org/convocatorias.
