Afghans seek civil engineer to oversee substation rehab at 100-MW Naghlu hydro project

Afghanistan national utility Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) invites expressions of interest from consultants to serve as supervisor civil engineer to oversee rehabilitation of a 110-kilovolt transmission substation at the 100-MW Naghlu hydroelectric project on Afghanistan’s Kabul River. Responses are due September 23.

In June, DABS recruited consultants to serve as international procurement adviser for rehabilitation of Naghlu and took bids for turbine-generator rehabilitation at the project.

The government previously took bids for rehabilitation of transmission switchyards associated with Naghlu, 66-MW Mahipar, and 22-MW Sarobi (or Saroubi) hydroelectric projects, all on the Kabul River. DABS said work had been completed on the Mahipar substation but has yet to begin at Naghlu.

The utility said it needs a supervisory civil engineer to support the technical monitoring of the implementation of the Naghlu substation work, extending possibly into 2016.

Expressions of interest are due to the address below September 23. For information, contact Projects Director Wali Oria, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), Chaman-e-Houzouri, Kabul, Afghanistan; (93) 729002628; E-mail:,, Internet:
