The government of Haiti seeks expressions of interest from consultants to study sedimentation and to design equipment rehabilitation for the 54-MW Peligre hydroelectric project. Responses are due November 14.
Government utility Electricite d’Haiti has applied for technical cooperation funding from the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) with which it plans to fund rehabilitation work on Peligre, which serves the Port-au-Prince area but has diminished generating capacity due to deteriorating equipment.
Work is to be solicited in two packages:
o Consultancy 1: Analyze the sedimentation situation in the Peligre reservoir; determine the hydric balance of the hydrological system of the project; determine a strategic solution to the sedimentation problem;
o Consultancy 2: Diagnose electro-mechanical equipment, including turbine-generators, controls, and auxiliaries; define rehabilitation to extend project life, including economic and environmental viability; design a hiring strategy and solicitation documents and contracts to carry out rehabilitation.
Expressions of interest, in paper and electronic versions, are due to the IADB at the address below by 4 p.m. Washington, D.C., time November 14.
