Sri Lanka's Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) invites expressions of interest to provide construction supervision for development of the 30.2-MW Moragolla hydropower project on Sri Lanka's Mahaweli River. Responses are due October 24.
Sri Lanka received a US$120 million loan from the Asian Development Bank that is to fund detailed engineering design for Moragolla and to advance 19 small hydropower projects and other electrical system work. The Moragolla project includes a 37-meter-tall concrete gravity dam and powerhouse a half-kilometer from the tailrace outfall of the 201-MW Kotmale hydroelectric project commissioned in 1985. The dam is about 3 kilometers downstream from the confluence of the Mahaweli and Kotmale Oya rivers.
CEB seeks a consultant to advise it during pre-construction by assisting in finalization of project specifications and in appointment of contractors. During project implementation, the consultant is to act at client's engineer.
A solicitation notice may be obtained from the ADB Internet site, www.adb.org, under the links "Businesses," "Consulting Opportunities," "Energy," "LOAN-3147 SRI."
Expressions of interest are to be submitted via the ADB website by October 24. For information, contact: Project Officer H.D.C.
