Cameroon seeks planning, tender preparation for 30-MW Lom Pangar

Cameroon invites expressions of interest from consultants to help prepare the 30-MW Lom Pangar hydroelectric project for tendering and construction in the Sanaga River Basin. Responses are due June 15, 2009.

With a credit from the World Bank’s International Development Association, Cameroon seeks consultants to establish a management system for the project involving time, cost, performance, risks, and contracting. Consultants also would help analyze results of technical, environmental, and social studies, help develop invitations to tender, and assist in the tender selection process.

The work is expected to require 12 months and could lead to tendering for management of the construction phase.

In December 2008, the government recruited consultants to study rural electrification in a program that is to include Lom Pangar, which previously has been estimated to total 56 MW. (HydroWorld 12/30/08)

Lom Pangar is to include a 46-meter-tall dam, a reservoir of 540 square kilometers and storage of 6 billion cubic meters of water, and a transmission line to an area currently served by diesel generation. In addition to generating its own electricity, Lom Pangar is expected to control flows to increase generation of downstream projects, 396-MW Song Loulou and 263-MW Edea, and the proposed 330-MW Nachtigal project.

Expressions of interest must be delivered by noon June 15 by e-mail to and and deposited with Secretariat de la Commission de Passation des Marches, Electricity Development Corp., Siege de EDC, sis immeuble Stamatiades, 2ieme etage, Yaounde, Cameroon. The submission should be labeled “Manifestation d’interet pour les services d’assistance au Maitre d’Ouvrage pour la phase preparatoire du projet Lom Pangar.”
