Responses now are due October 1.

DABS previously called for responses by September 15. It also seeks bids by October 4 to supply poles, conductors, distribution transformers and cables for electrification of Sarobi around the Naghlu hydro plant.

In April, it sought consultants to serve on the dam safety advisory panel as well as an environmental and social advisory panel for Naghlu.

DABS now invites expressions of interest and qualifications by October 1 from training consulting firms and institutes to provide operations and maintenance training for Naghlu personnel. Responses of no more than 10 pages must be submitted to CFO Ahmad Shah Sahil at the address below.
