Ethiopian Electric Power Corp. (EEPCO) invites expressions of interest in financing and building the 254-MW Genale Dawa 3 hydroelectric project in Ethiopia. Responses are due April 15.
EEPCO seeks expressions of interest from companies to arrange credit financing from government or other soft loan sources and to construct the multipurpose project on an engineering-procurement-construction basis.
The utility said foreign consultants previously developed feasibility studies of the project, to be built 400 kilometers southeast of Addis Ababa at an estimated cost of US$337.8 million. Upon completion in 56 months, the project is expected to generate 1,640 gigawatt-hours annually.
Expressions of interest are due to the address below by April 15. EEPCO plans to invite short-listed companies to submit bids.
