Pakistan’s Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) invites applications for pre-qualification to construct civil works of the 128-MW Keyal Khwar hydroelectric project on Pakistan’s Keyal Khwar River. Responses are due August 2.
The Keyal Khwar project is located in Dasu District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The Keyal Khwar River is a tributary of the Indus River. Lahmeyer, NDC, and EASE PAK are project consultants for the feasibility report, detailed engineering design, construction design, and construction supervision.
WAPDA seeks firms to construct a 57-meter-tall, 114-meter-long concrete gravity dam with integrated low-level gated spillway, ungated auxiliary spillway, underground powerhouse to accommodate two 64-MW vertical Pelton turbine-generators, 7-kilometer concrete-lined headrace tunnel, three desander caverns, 626-meter-tall steel-lined pressure shaft, 687-meter-long tailrace tunnel, hydraulic steel structure equipment, two access roads, and an 11-kilovolt overhead line. The work is to require four years beginning in 2013.
The authority said it plans to pre-qualify bidders in a separate solicitation for manufacture, supply, testing, and commissioning of mechanical and electrical equipment.
