The Asian Development Bank (ADB) invites expressions of interest from consultants to review the detailed design of five small hydroelectric projects in Vietnam. Responses are due November 4.
ADB is funding a renewable energy development and network expansion program for Vietnam. Under the program, Vietnam’s Central Power Corp. called for bids in November to supply hydro-mechanical and electro-mechanical equipment for the 7.2-MW A Roang hydroelectric plant.
The bank currently seeks consultants to provide guidance to Central Power Corp. and Northern Power Corp. in preparing detailed design of five small hydropower projects ranging from 2.5 to 7.5 MW. The consultant is to review the detailed designs including hydrology analysis, geology surveys, civil engineering designs, and electro-mechanical equipment designs and optimization.
The work is expected to require eight months with a budget of US$60,000.
A solicitation notice, including terms of reference, may be obtained from the ADB Internet site, www.adb.org, under the links “Businesses,” “Consulting Opportunities,” “Energy,” “TA-7262.”
Expressions of interest are to be submitted via the ADB website by November 4. For information, contact Project Officer Aruna Wanniachchi Kankanamalage, Asian Development Bank, E-mail: email@example.com.
