Papua New Guinea seeks consultants for power program, including hydro

The government of Papua New Guinea (PNG) invites expressions of interest to help prepare a power sector development project including hydropower. Responses are due September 15.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved funding of US$1.2 million from the Japan Special Fund to provide technical assistance to design a power sector development project. Work is to include a least-cost power sector development plan, identification and draft engineering design of core subprojects, financial and economic due diligence, and project compliance.

Among other work, consultants are to undertake the optimization of hydropower resources and assessment of effects of proposed hydropower projects. In an unrelated solicitation, PNG Sustainable Energy Ltd. seeks bids by September 8 to supply electrical and mechanical works for the Togarao hydroelectric project in Papua New Guinea. (HNN 8/15/08)

For assistance to the Energy Division of PNG's Department of Petroleum and Energy, ADB plans to recruit consultants for 26 international person-months and 26 national person-months.

Information on the solicitation is on the ADB Internet site at http://csrn.adb.org:8080/csrn/publicNoticeList.htm?projectNo=41504&projectSeqNo=01&projectTypeCd=2&listingNo=T1&pageSource=MainPage#. Terms of reference are available on the same site. ADB said the anticipated deadline for submitting expressions of interest is September 15 via the ADB Internet site at http://csrn.adb.org:8080/csrn/login.jsp.

Under the tentative schedule, a short list of prospective bidders would be named by September 16. Work would tentatively be scheduled to begin October 1.

The ADB project officer is Luigi Bodda, Pacific Operations Division, Pacific Department, Asian Development Bank, P.O. Box 789, 0980 Manila, Philippines; (63) 2-6326186; E-mail: lbodda@adb.org; Internet: www.adb.org.
