  • India seeks civil, HM contractor for 444-MW Vishnugad Pipalkoti

    Tehri Hydro Development Corp. Ltd. (THDC) invites applications for pre-qualification for civil construction and hydro-mechanical equipment for the 444-MW Vishnugad Pipalkoti hydroelectric project on the Alaknanda River. Responses are due February 27.

    In 2007, THDC canceled pre-qualification for a full engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) contract for Vishnugad Pipalkoti, in India's Uttarakhand State. (HNN 7/12/07) At that time, it said it intended subsequently to issue separate procurement notices for two EPC packages, one for civil works and hydro-mechanical equipment, and one for electro-mechanical equipment.

    The current solicitation seeks EPC construction of civil works and supply of hydro-mechanical equipment, including:
    o Civil works: 65-meter-tall concrete gravity dam, 13.4-kilometer headrace tunnel, desilting chambers, underground powerhouse, transformer cavern, and 3-kilometer tailrace tunnel; and
    o Hydro-mechanical works: radial and vertical gates, hoisting arrangements for spillways and intakes, penstock steel liner, etc.

    The subsequent solicitation for electro-mechanical works is expected to seek four vertical Francis turbine-generators of 111 MW each; 13 single-phase, 46-MVa, 13.8/400-kV transformers; and 420-kV GIS, XLPE cables, and control system.

    Pre-qualification documents are available on the THDC Internet site, http://thdc.gov.in, for the information of applicants. Documents, in English, may be obtained until February 26 from the address below for 10,000 rupees or US$222 by demand draft to Tehri Hydro Development Corp. Ltd. at New Delhi/Rishikesh.

    Applications for pre-qualification are due by 2 p.m. February 27. THDC expects to issue invitations to bid in May.
