Mozambique invites expressions of interest from consultants to serve as hydro-mechanical specialist on a project to complete expansion of Corumana Dam on the Sabie River. Responses are due May 26.
Mozambique’s national water directorate recruited consultants in 2012 to perform design and supervision, and environmental and social service work for completion of Corumana Dam to augment water supply to Maputo under the National Water Resources Development Project. The program includes completion of Corumana, construction of three small dams, and preparation of future investments in Pavua Dam on the Pungue River and the Moamba Major Dam, which is expected to include a hydro project, on the Incomati River. The directorate also recruited consultants in 2008 for the National Water Resources Development Project including work on dam design, dam safety, environmental safeguards, and institutional support.
Work on Corumana Dam is to include increasing the height of the dam to 117 meters from 110 meters, installing crest spillway gates, and a fuse plug.
In the current solicitation (TA-20), the water directorate, Direccao Nacional de Aguas (DNA), invites expressions of interest from consultants for a panel of experts, specifically a hydro-mechanical specialist.
Work is to include review of structural and electro-mechanical design of spillway gates and other inlet and outlet structures, lifting mechanism and control system; review of drawings, specifications, manuals and other documents; on-site observations and review of shop drawings; inspection of equipment, particularly spillway gates at the place of manufacturing; supervision of installation of gates and all electrical equipment; review of gate opening and discharge procedure and downstream warning system; and supervision of all equipment tests and startup.
Expressions of interest are due to the address below by May 26.
