Nile Lakes states pre-qualify firms to build, equip 80-MW Rusumo Falls hydro project

Nile Equatorial Lakes states invite applications for pre-qualification to carry out civil works, hydro-mechanical and electro-mechanical equipment, a transmission line and switchyard of the proposed 80-MW Rusumo Falls hydroelectric project on the Kagera River. Responses are due March 27.

The Nile Equatorial Lakes Subsidiary Action Program (NELSAP), a unit of the Nile Basin Initiative, recruited consultants in January to perform water quality and ecological baseline studies for Rusumo Falls, which will be located on the border of Rwanda and Tanzania and feature transmission lines interconnecting those countries and Burundi. Rusumo Power Co. Ltd., a hydro development company established by Burundi, Rwanda and Tanzania, recruited a managing director for the project last year.

On behalf of Rusumo Power Co. Ltd., NELSAP now invites applications for pre-qualification for two lots:

CP 1 — Civil Works and
CP 2 — Hydro- and Electro-mechanical Equipment and HV Transmission Line and Switchyard.

Pre-qualification documents in English may be obtained from the address below upon payment of US$100 by deposit on Regional Rusumo Falls Project in National Bank of Rwanda AC No. 1000026828 NELSAP RPCL, Swift Code: BNRWRWRW. The document will be sent by registered mail or electronically.

Applications for pre-qualification are due to the address below by 10 a.m., Kigali time, March 27 in sealed envelopes labeled “Application to Pre-qualify for Project No. P075941, Regional Rusumo Falls Hydroelectric Project: ICB NoRRFP01WORKS2015.”
