Madagascar seeks new fourth unit for 58-MW Andekaleka

Madagascar’s national utility invites applications for pre-qualification to supply a new fourth turbine-generator for the 58-MW Andekaleka hydroelectric project. Responses are due November 19.

It previously solicited rehabilitation work at the project under a US$10 million credit from the World Bank’s International Development Association to help rebuild the ailing utility, Jiro Sy Rano Malagasy (Jirama).
