The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) seeks expressions of interest from consultants to provide legal assistance in financing the rehabilitation of the Inga hydroelectric complex on the Congo River. Responses are due January 22.

The government noted the generation, transmission, and distribution system of national utility Societe Nationale d’Electricite (SNEL) is in an advanced state of disrepair. Currently the 350-MW Inga 1 and 1,424-MW Inga 2 plants produce a total of only 500 MW due to lack of maintenance. (HNN 11/17/06)
