Mozambique’s Ministry of Energy seeks expressions of interest from consultants to design a strategy and a new government agency to advance the development of large generation and transmission projects, including hydropower. Responses are due November 15.
With funding from the World Bank, Mozambique plans to reform its energy system and increase access to electricity. (HNN 10/26/07) Part of the program is to develop the 1,500-MW Mphanda Nkuwa hydro project (potentially expanding to 2,400 MW), 800- to 1,200-MW Cahora Bassa North hydro project, 1,000-MW Temane gas-fired plant, and 1,500-MW Moatize coal-fired plant.
In the latest of several solicitations under the program, the government said it seeks to ensure that Mozambique receives maximum economic result and development benefits from the projects. To that end, it seeks consultants to propose the most appropriate role for various state entities and to prepare detailed design for a unit of the Ministry of Energy to oversee the mission. Work is expected to require 30 days beginning in November.
Expressions of interest and qualifications, in English, are due by 2 p.m. November 15. They must be labeled on the envelope �Expressions of Interest on Design of Strategy and Ministry of Energy Unit for Large Generation and Transmission Projects.�
