Pakistan seeks monitoring of Jinnah Barrage refurbishment

The Irrigation and Power Department of Pakistan’s Punjab State invites expressions of interest from consultants for monitoring and evaluation of the proposed rehabilitation of Jinnah Barrage on the Indus River. Responses are due February 24, 2010.

The Irrigation and Power Department previously invited applications for pre-qualification by March 6 to rehabilitate and modernize Jinnah Barrage, which was built in 1943. (HydroWorld 1/14/10) In a separate project, Pakistan’s Water and Power Development Authority named MWH of the United States to provide construction management for the 96-MW Jinnah hydroelectric project.

The Irrigation and Power Department recruited consultants in January to oversee rehabilitation of the dam. It said the eventual winner of that solicitation would not be eligible for the monitoring and evaluation work.

The current solicitation seeks monitoring of project implementation and supervision of the environmental mitigation plan, implementation, and project impact.

Expressions of interest and qualifications, in English, are due by 2 p.m. February 24 to the address below. For information, contact Head/Project Director, PMO for Punjab Barrages, Rehabilitation and Modernization Projects, Irrigation & Power Department, Government of Punjab, Project Offices Building, Canal Bank, Mustafabad, Dharampura, Lahore, Pakistan; (92) 42-99250351; Fax: (92) 42-99250352; E-mail:
