Rwanda seeks experts including consultants in hydro

Rwanda’s Ministry of Infrastructure invites applications from regional experts, including hydropower experts, to advance its electricity rehabilitation project. Responses are due March 30.

Under the World Bank-funded Urgent Electricity Rehabilitation Project, Rwanda seeks regional experts in: public works including roads; transport economics or engineering; planning for economic development strategy; modern energy including hydropower; and rural-based energy including micro-hydro. They will serve under 12-month renewable contracts.

The modern energy expert is to review and adjust energy policy with a focus on grid electricity. The consultant is to work on new power supply sources and advise on tariffs for independent power producers especially in areas of micro-hydro and methane gas projects. The expert, who is to have training in hydroelectric engineering, is to help plan other generation and transmission resources in the local or regional context, such as new hydroelectric capacity.

The rural-based energy expert is to formulate a strategy to implement renewable energy programs, including micro-hydropower. That consultant is to have a degree in electrical engineering or in sustainable energies.

Interested candidates are invited to submit their credentials and references to the address below by 3 p.m. March 30. For information, contact Project Manager, Urgent Electricity Rehabilitation Project, P.O. Box 1979, Kigali, Rwanda; (250) 503-999; Fax: (250) 500-198; E-mail: uerp@rwanda1.com.
