Power pool seeks study of 118-MW Kassa B hydro development project in Guinea

The West African Power Pool (WAPP) invites expressions of interest to prepare feasibility studies of the 118-MW Kassa B hydro development project in Guinea. Responses are due May 27.

With funding from the World Bank, the Benin-based WAPP is working to develop the CLSG power system to boost electricity supply to Cote D’Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. The program involves construction of four power stations and a dam. Guinea state-owned utility Electricite de Guinee took bids in April for spare parts for the 75-MW Garafiri hydroelectric plant on Guinea’s Konkoure River.

WAPP now seeks expressions of interest to perform a pre-feasibility study of Kassa B, as well as risk analyses and terms of reference for additional reconnaissance, feasibility studies, and environmental and social impact studies. The work is to require 22 person-months from February through May 2014.

Expressions of interest, labeled “Manifestation d’Interet pour les etudes de prefaisabilite du projet d’amenagement hydroelectrique de Kassa B in Guinee,” are due by noon May 27 to Secretariat General du Systeme d’Echanges d’Energie Electrique Ouest Africain, Zones des Ambassades, PK-6, 06 BP 2907 — Cotonou, Benin. WAPP plans to compile a short-list of firms for invitation to bid.

For information, contact Secretaire General Amadou Diallo, Systeme d’Echanges d’Energie Electrique Ouest Africain (EEEOA/WAPP), 06 BP 2907 — Cotonou, Benin; (229) 21374195; Fax: (229) 21377143; E-mail: info@ecowapp.org, tobkourou@ecowapp.org, tobkourou30@yahoo.com.
