Haiti's agriculture ministry seeks bids to supply gages and monitoring instrumentation at the 54-MW Peligre Dam hydroelectric project and at Canneau Dam on Haiti's Artibonite River. Documents may be obtained until October 16, with bids due November 4.
With funding from the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), the Ministere de l'Agriculture, des Ressources Naturelles et du Developpement Rural (MARNDR) seeks the work under a water management program in the Artibonite River Basin. IADB awarded a grant to Haiti in 2011 to help restore Peligre. Alstom-Comelex won a contract in 2012 to perform that work.
The Artibonite water management program seeks instrumentation to gather knowledge about flows and flood management. IADB recruited consultants in 2012 for social and environmental studies of the proposed 32-MW Artibonite 4C hydroelectric project to be built downstream of Peligre on the Artibonite.
The current solicitation seeks bids to supply gages in Peligre's watershed, monitoring instrumentation at Peligre Dam, and gages at Canneau Dam, which supplies water for irrigation and for the 2.65-MW Drouet hydroelectric project. It also seeks an information system for acquisition, transmission and storage of data. The work is to require 19 months.
Tender documents, in French, may be obtained from the address below by October 16 for 2,250 gourdes or US$50 by certified check payable to MARNDR. Bids are due by noon November 4.
