Pakistan’s Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) invites expressions of interest from consultants to help develop a sediment management strategy as part of rehabilitation of the 243-MW Warsak hydroelectric project on Pakistan’s Kabul River. Responses are due September 30.
WAPDA took bids in April for a tendering agent for Warsak rehabilitation. It also called for bids in March to rehabilitate a turbine runner and wicket gates at Warsak. It took bids last year to supply butterfly and gate valves for the project.
Warsak is located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, formerly called North-West Frontier Province, site of significant hydropower activity. The project includes four 40-MW generating units, dam, irrigation tunnels, and transmission system. Two 41.48-MW units were added in 1980-1981.
WAPDA now invites expressions of interest from consultants to support the agency in procurement of sediment measurement equipment, installation and training on hydrometric and sediment-metric equipment, and support to establish a sustainable sediment management strategy including experimental flushings of the reservoir.
Bids are due by 11 a.m. September 30 to the address below. For information, contact: General Manager (Hydel) Development, Water and Power Development Authority, 104 WAPDA House, Lahore, Pakistan; (92) 42-99202189; Fax: (92) 42-36369004; E-mail: email@example.com; Internet: www.wapda.gov.pk.
