Haiti seeks hydro-mechanical equipment rehab for Canneau Dam

Haiti’s agriculture ministry seeks bids to renovate hydro-mechanical equipment at Canneau Dam on Haiti’s Artibonite River. Documents may be obtained until November 3, with bids due November 20.

With funding from the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), the Ministere de l’Agriculture, des Ressources Naturelles et du Developpement Rural (MARNDR) seeks the work under a water management program in the Artibonite River Basin. The ministry also has called for bids by November 4 to supply gages and monitoring instrumentation at Canneau and the 54-MW Peligre Dam hydroelectric project, also on the Artibonite.

IADB recruited consultants in 2012 for social and environmental studies of the proposed 32-MW Artibonite 4C hydroelectric project to be built downstream of Peligre on the Artibonite.

The current solicitation seeks bids to renovate hydro-mechanical equipment, including acquisition of micro-processors, hydraulic cylinders and a control center, plus repair of valves, at Canneau Dam, which supplies water for irrigation and for the 2.65-MW Drouet hydroelectric project. The work is to require 15 months.

Tender documents, in French, may be obtained from the address below by November 3 for 2,250 gourdes or US$50 by certified check payable to MARNDR. Bids are due by noon November 20.
