Burundi’s water and electric utility invites expressions of interest from consultants to carry out procurement for development of the 31.5-MW Jiji and 16.5-MW Mulembwe hydroelectric projects in Burundi’s Bururi Province. Responses are due June 16.
The World Bank approved in April a US$100 million grant to Burundi for construction of the two hydropower plants on the Jiji and Mulembwe rivers. Regie de Production et de Distribution d’Eau et d’Electricite (REGIDESO) recruited consultants in December to supervise tendering and construction of the projects and a related transmission line. In March, REGIDESO recruited consultants to perform a geotechnical design review of Jiji’s proposed dam and sought dam engineers, hydrologists and geologists to perform independent review of that dam.
REGIDESO now invites expressions of interest from consultants to work on all aspects of procurement for the hydro projects, technical support for monitoring of execution of contracts, and integration of procurement with planning and fund management.
Expressions of interest, labeled “Ami pour le Recrutement d’un Consultant Individuel en Passation des Marches,” are due to the address below by 10 a.m. June 16.
For information, contact Monsieur le Directeur General de la REGIDESO, Projet Hydroelectrique de Jiji et Mulembwe (PHJIMU), Avenue des Travailleurs No. 8, BP 660, Bujumbura, Burundi; (257) 22-273246; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
