The government of Mongolia invites expressions of interest from consultants to develop a feasibility study of flow regulation and dam construction on the Orkhon River. Responses are due March 16.
Mongolia received funding from the World Bank’s International Development Association for technical assistance to the Mining Infrastructure Investment Support Project (MINIS), which includes study of proposed flow regulation of the Orkhon River and construction of a water reservoir complex.
The government recruited consultants in 2013 to prepare specifications for the feasibility study of dam construction on the Orkhon, adding at that time that the study would include the feasibility of building a hydroelectric project. MINIS recruited consultants in February to develop a detailed set of feasibility studies of the 300-MW Shuren hydroelectric project on the Selenge River.
MINIS now seeks consultants to prepare a detailed set of feasibility studies of flow regulation of the Orkhon and construction of a water reservoir complex. The 15-month assignment is expected to begin in April.
The project is aimed at constructing a dam and reservoir on the Orkhon River to secure water supply for mining operations in Mongolia’s Southern Gobi region.
