DR Congo seeks water intake, canal construction for Inga hydroelectric complex

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) seeks bids to construct a water intake and an additional supply canal for the Inga hydroelectric complex on the Congo River in the DRC. A site visit and a pre-bid meeting are scheduled July 9-10 with bids due August 18.

DRC recruited consultants in May to develop a sedimentology study, an electricity pricing study and an intake capacity study of the proposed 4,800-MW Inga 3 Basse Chute hydroelectric project.

The Inga site currently includes the 350-MW Inga 1 and 1,424-MW Inga 2 hydroelectric projects, which are undergoing refurbishment. Additionally, the DRC is developing Inga 3 Basse Chute as a step toward development of a 42,000-MW Grand Inga hydroelectric complex.

On behalf of national utility Societe Nationale d’Electricite (SNEL), the Coordination des Projets now seeks bids for construction of a water intake and additional supply canal for Inga.
