Pakistan’s Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) seeks bids to serve as tendering agent for rehabilitation of the 243-MW Warsak hydroelectric project on Pakistan’s Kabul River. Bids are due April 9.

WAPDA previously called for bids by March 31 to rehabilitate a turbine runner and wicket gates at Warsak. It took bids last year to supply butterfly and gate valves for the project. It took bids in 2011 for protection, instrumentation, and control equipment for rehabilitation and upgrading of Warsak, which was completed in 1960.

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 seeks bids for a tender agent for the supervision of procurement for Warsak’s rehabilitation.
