Hydro operator Pamir Energy has extended the deadline for bids to supply dredging equipment for rehabilitation of the 14-MW Pamir 1 hydroelectric project in Tajikistan’s Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO). Bids are now due November 14.
Pamir previously called for bids by October 29. (HNN 9/29/08)
The World Bank board approved in August a US$2.5 million grant to help fund restoration and repair of flood damage to Pamir 1, an existing World Bank-funded project in Tajikistan. (HNN 8/11/08) The World Bank’s International Development Association previously provided US$10 million to help rehabilitate Pamir 1 and expand it to 28 MW and to refurbish several other plants and the GBAO transmission system.
In the current solicitation, Pamir Energy seeks bids to supply a dredging pump and floating pipeline for cleaning the Pamir 1 sedimentation basin.
Pamir 1 supplies 75 percent of the capacity in GBAO’s main grid system. It is operated by Pamir Energy, a privately owned special purpose company, under a 25-year concession from Tajikistan to operate and further develop all existing generation, transmission, and distribution facilities in GBAO.
Bid documents may be inspected at the address below. Bids are due by 2 p.m. November 14.
