Madagascar seeks interconnection of hydropower sites

Madagascar utility Jiro Sy Rano Malagasy (Jirama) seeks bids for materials and equipment to interconnect hydropower projects to the island nation’s grid system. Bids in separate solicitations are due December 19 and 21.

With a US$10 million credit from the World Bank’s International Development Association to help rebuild Jirama, Madagascar has been seeking rehabilitation work at existing hydroelectric projects, as well as consultants to advise on power and water sector reform.

In September, the Ministere de l’Energie recruited engineers to help study potential hydroelectric sites of between 90 and 300 MW to serve the interconnected networks of Antananarivo, Toamasina, and Fianarantsoa. (HNN 8/2/07)

In one current solicitation, Jirama seeks bids by 9 a.m. December 19 to the second address below to supply materials and equipment for the connection of the hydroelectric project HFF of Tsiazompaniry. Madagascar’s Ministere de l’Industrialisation et de l’Artisanal identifies Tsiazompaniry as a 50-kW project operated by Jirama.

In a second solicitation, Jirama seeks bids by 9 a.m. December 21 to the second address below to supply electric equipment for the connection of power stations to the integrated network of Toamasina.

Tender documents in French may be obtained, for each solicitation, for 100,000 ariaries (US$55.65) or the equivalent if obtained at the office of the first address below. They may be obtained from the same address for US$250 if requested for delivery by courier or e-mail. Payment is by bank draft to Jiro Sy Rano Malagasy.
