The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (TDA) seeks applications from U.S. consultants to conduct a definitional mission of the power sector in Nigeria, including the potential for at least two hydroelectric projects. Responses are due January 31.
The definitional mission is to examine: Nigeria’s current independent power market, regulatory conditions, and prognosis for independent power production. TDA recently funded a contract for Delphos International of the United States to help prepare for privatization of the 600-MW Shiroro hydroelectric project and the 1,320-MW Egbin thermal power plant in Nigeria. (HNN 11/7/07)
In the current solicitation, the consultant is to assess whether TDA should fund studies and technical assistance to the power sector. The work has a maximum estimated cost of US$90,000.
The consultant also is to review two proposed hydropower projects in the states of Kaduna and Adamawa to determine whether they are candidates for TDA support. TDA’s technical representative is to provide specific details on the pre-identified hydro projects and points of contact for each project.
Should the hydro projects be recommended positively, the consultant is to develop terms of reference and budgets for the projects.
The contract is open to U.S. firms only. Solicitation documents may be obtained from the U.S. Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by searching for solicitation No. CO2008110005.
