France's Adour River Basin agency seeks bids to design and manage construction of two reservoirs in the basin with possible development of hydro projects. Bids are due February 6.

The agency managing the Seine River Basin recently called for bids in February for refurbishment work at the 5.9-MW Panneciere hydroelectric project on the Yonne River.

EPTB Institution Adour now seeks bids for two lots for preliminary studies and final studies, design, assistance in tendering and construction management for Tailluret Reservoir in the departments of Landes and Gers in the sub-watershed of the Midouze River and Louet 2 Reservoir in the departments of Pyrenees and Pyrenees-Atlantiques in the sub-watershed of the Adour. The two lots are to require 60 months and 72 months.

Institution Adour said preliminary design work is to study possible addition of hydroelectric developments to the reservoirs.
