Afghan procurement specialist sought for rehabilitation of 100-MW Naghlu hydro project

Afghanistan national utility Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) invites expressions of interest from consultants to serve as national procurement specialist for rehabilitation of the 100-MW Naghlu hydroelectric project on Afghanistan’s Kabul River. Responses are due October 24.

Since 2006, the World Bank has been financing the rehabilitation of electrical and electro-mechanical parts of the Naghlu project, which was built with help from the Soviet Union in the 1960s. DABS recruited consultants in September to serve as supervisor civil engineer to oversee rehabilitation of a 110-kilovolt transmission substation at Naghlu. It took bids in June for turbine-generator rehabilitation.

DABS now seeks an Afghanistan native to serve as national procurement specialist to work with an international procurement adviser recruited by the utility in June. To require 210 working days, the work is to include identifying the most appropriate procurement approach, preparing solicitation documents, assisting in procurement and ensuring compliance with World Bank requirements.

Expressions of interest including resume and cover letter are due October 24 by e-mail to the addresses below. For information, contact Projects Director Wali Oria, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), H.Q., Chaman-e-Houzouri, Kabul, Afghanistan; (93) 729002628; E-mail:,, Internet:
