Malawi

The government of Malawi invites expressions of interest from consultants to perform detailed design and bid preparation for rehabilitation and raising of Kamuzu Dam as well as dam evaluation for Kamuzu Dam 2. Responses are due April 21.

The government also seeks expressions of interest by April 21 for environmental and social impact assessment of the Kamuzu Dam 1 work.

Refurbishment of the half-century-old Kamuzu Barrage is part of the World Bank-financed National Water Development Program, Shire River Basin Management Program and the Integrated Water Resources Management Plan for Lake Malawi and the Shire River System.

The government took bids in March and April for gates, civil construction and a jib crane/weed collector for the upgrade of Kamuzu at Liwonde on Malawi's Shire River. It recruited consultants in 2013 to provide construction supervision to upgrade Kamuzu Barrage to increase Shire River Basin water security for critical uses including hydropower projects.

The Lilongwe Water Board now seeks consultants to perform detailed design for rehabilitation and raising of Kamuzu Dam 1 and to prepare bidding documents including specifications and drawings, as well as to perform an expert dam evaluation for Kamuzu Dam 2 to allow for dam maintenance works. Consultants are to have experience in detailed design of similar dams; design of raising and rehabilitation; geotechnical, topographic and hydrographic surveys; preparation of tender documents; and sub-Saharan Africa. The work is to require 40 staff-months over nine months.

Tender documents may be obtained from the first address below. Expressions of interest labeled "Detailed Design for Rehabilitation and Raising of Kamuzu Dam I and Dam Evaluation of Kamuzu Dam II for Lilongwe Water Board" are due to the second address below by April 21.

The Lilongwe Water Board also seeks consultants to perform environmental and social impact assessment of the Kamuzu Dam 1 rehabilitation and raising project. Consultants are to have experience in preparing environmental impact assessments and resettlement action plans; addressing environmental and social issues of large-scale water projects; and working in countries similar to Malawi, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. The work is to require 6.5 staff-months over nine months.
