Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Agriculture invites applications for pre-qualification to rehabilitate Yntumak Dam and reservoir and build a new hydro plant. Responses are due June 14.
With funding from the World Bank, the ministry’s Committee for Water Resources seeks contractors under the Nura River Clean-up Project. The project is to allow the dam to provide flow control for the Nura River and to manage mercury contaminated sediments in the reservoir.
Work includes completion of the partially built Yntumak Reservoir, including rehabilitation of a 1.6-kilometer-long, 22.5-meter-tall earthfill main dam; construction of a spillway with rubber dam for a design flood of 3,000 cms; refurbishment and adaptation of a bottom outlet; and construction of a 700-kW hydroelectric plant. The hydro plant also is to be connected to Kazakhstan’s transmission grid.
Construction is to be completed in the 2008 and 2009 construction seasons.
