Pakistan's Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) invites expressions of interest for management consultant services for the construction of 150-kW Ghabir Dam on Pakistan's Ghabir River. Responses are due September 18.

Pakistan has numerous water resources and hydropower projects in development. Recent activity by WAPDA includes completion of the 22-MW Jabban hydropower project and financing from China for the 969-MW Neelum Jhelum project.

Ghabir Dam primarily is an irrigation project in Chakwal District of Punjab State featuring a 138-foot-tall, 3,117-foot-long earth core rockfill dam.

WAPDA seeks management consultants registered with the Pakistan Engineering Council to oversee development of the project on an engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) basis.
