Niger seeks lender’s engineer to monitor 125-MW Kandadji Dam hydro project

The government of Niger again invites expressions of interest to serve as lender’s engineer to monitor construction of the 125-MW Kandadji Dam hydroelectric project on the Niger River. Responses are due August 25.

The government of Niger issued a similar solicitation last year and also recruited firms to serve as prime contractor. More recently, it called for expressions of interest by August 25 to determine a management structure for the Kandadji project.

The Kandadji Dam project includes construction of a dam for regulating the flow of the Niger River in order to provide water for irrigation, drinking, sanitation, ecology, grazing, fisheries, and about 629 gigawatt-hours of electricity annually.

The government’s high commission on Niger Valley management, Haut Commissariat a l’Amenagement de la Vallee du Niger (HCAVN), now invites expressions of interest for a lender’s engineer to perform an operational audit of engineering, construction management, environmental and social aspects of the project. The work is to require about 1,780 man-days over 68 months.

Expressions of interest and qualifications are due by 10 a.m. August 25, labeled “Manifestation d’Interet pour l’Audit Operationnel des Aspects d’Ingenierie, de Gestion de la Construction, Environnementaux dt Sociaux.” For information, contact Haut Commissariat a l’Amenagement de la Vallee du Niger (HCAVN), Division Marches Publics, Quartier RYAD Route Niamey Nyala, BP 206, Niamey, Niger; (227) 20732313; Fax: (227) 20732185; E-mail:,,; Internet:
