Afghans extend call for turbine-generator rehabilitation at 100-MW Naghlu hydro project

Naghlu Hydropower Project

Afghanistan national utility Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) has extended the deadline for bids for turbine-generator rehabilitation at the 100-MW Naghlu hydroelectric project on Afghanistan's Kabul River. Bids now are due June 7.

DABS previously called for bids by April 15. It recruited consultants in January to monitor and supervise the turbine-generator rehabilitation work. It also took bids in January to supply spare parts and consumables for Naghlu's rehabilitation. The utility recruited consultants last year to provide operations and maintenance training for Naghlu staff.

Since 2006, the World Bank has been financing the rehabilitation of electrical and electro-mechanical parts of the Naghlu project, which was built with help from the Soviet Union in the 1960s.

DABS now seeks bids for rehabilitation of Unit 1, overhaul of Unit 3 and procurement of spare parts to support regular maintenance of Naghlu's generating equipment for at least five years. The work is expected to require 270 days.

Bidding documents in English may be obtained by e-mail request to the addresses below.

Bids now are due by 10 a.m. June 7. For information, contact Procurement Director Shafiqullah Hanif, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), First Floor, O/o CFO, Chaman-e-Houzouri, Kabul, Afghanistan; (93) 752002063; E-mail:,; Internet:
