Sri Lanka seeks consultants for control center, SCADA system

Sri Lanka’s Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) seeks expressions of interest from consultants to assist in developing CEB’s new National System Control Center and SCADA System Project.

No response date was listed in the April 14 solicitation, a part of the Asian Development Bank-funded Sustainable Power Sector Development program. (HNN 1/28/08) ADB is considering lending another US$100 million for the program, which is to enhance reliability and remove grid constraints to allow the addition of 200 MW of small hydropower and other clean energy projects.

Consultants are sought to provide technical and administrative assistance to complete replacement of the present control system center in Colombo with a state-of-the-art supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. The project involves installation of 40 remote terminal units (RTU) and interconnection of more than 30 RTUs and computerized substation control systems, as well as installation of a country-wide fiber-optic cable network.

Consultants are to evaluate and amend conceptual designs, prepare specifications and bid documents, assist in bidding and contract negotiations, and provide implementation supervision.

Expressions of interest and qualifications are to be submitted, in duplicate, to the CEB address below. A short list of consultants is to be invited to bid.
