Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) seeks bids for construction and equipment rehabilitation of the 1-MW Tinau hydroelectric project in Nepal. Bids are due November 27.
With funding from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), NEA seeks the work under the Nepal Electricity Transmission Expansion and Supply Improvement Project.
