Bank seeks geological study of Montenegro hydro site

The World Bank’s International Finance Corp. (IFC) invites expressions of interest from consultants to perform a geological investigation of the stability of the Djurdjevine hydropower project site on the Moraca River in Montenegro. Responses are due October 5, 2009.

IFC signed an advisory mandate with the government of Montenegro for development of hydropower plants on the Moraca River under a public private partnership model. IFC recruited consultants in May to assist with communications and stakeholder relations involving hydro development on the Moraca. Those projects include 127-MW Andrijevo, 37-MW Raslovici, 37-MW Milunovici, and 37-MW Zlatica.

In the current solicitation, IFC’s Private Enterprise Partnership for Southern Europe Infrastructure seeks a technical consultant to assess the geological stability of the Djurdjevine site. Work is to include a topographical survey, engineering and geological mapping of drilling, investigation drilling, refractional seismic and geo-electrical probe tests, and laboratory tests.

Expressions of interest, not to exceed 20 pages, are to be submitted by e-mail to the address below by October 5. IFC plans to invite short-listed firms to submit bids.
