China seeks hydropower impact study in Changjiang River Basin

The developer of China’s 30-MW Wuxikou Dam project invites expressions of interest from consultants to conduct a cumulative impact assessment of hydroelectric projects on the Changjiang River in China. Responses are due November 8.

Wuxikou Integrated Flood Management Construction Development Co. pre-qualified firms in 2012 for engineering and construction of the flood management project featuring Wuxikou Dam on the Changjiang (Yangtze) River. In February, Hunan Xiangjiang Navigation Construction & Development Corp. took bids to build a ship lock, dam sluices, and powerhouse for the 90-MW Tugutang hydroelectric project on the Xiang River.

The government of China has received a US$100 million loan from the World Bank for the total US$513.7 million Jiangxi Wuxikou Integrated Flood Management Project, which includes a 46.8-meter-tall, 498.6-meter-long concrete gravity dam, flood handling structures, power plant, and related facilities.

Jiangxi Wuxikou Integrated Flood Management Project Management Office now invites expressions of interest from consultants to carry out detailed assessment of cumulative impacts in relation to the Changjiang River hydraulic cascade development. Mitigation measures are to be proposed for the entire basin, which includes giant projects such as 22,300-MW Three Gorges Dam. Mitigation measures are to be integrated into the project environment plan and implemented during project implementation and operation.

Expressions of interest are due to the address below by hand, mail, fax, or e-mail by November 8.
