Ethiopia courts consultants, services for Tana-Beles basin program

Ethiopia's Ministry of Water Resources plans to recruit consultants and suppliers for a water resources program in the Tana and Beles subbasins, site of the 460-MW Beles hydroelectric project, under construction on the Beles River.

The government received US$45 million from the World Bank for the Tana and Beles Integrated Water Resources Development Project, which is intended to develop enabling institutions and investments for integrated planning, management, and development in the Tana and Beles subbasins to accelerate sustainable growth.

A report on the project listed institutional weaknesses in the basin that need to be addressed to ensure growth in the basin is economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable. Among activities in the basin is construction of the Beles hydro project, which will have a substantial effect on flows from Lake Tana and in the Beles River, the report said. (HNN 1/23/07)

The ministry plans to seek consulting services including integrated water resources information, groundwater assessment, environmental monitoring, a decision support system for water resources planning and management, and preparation of new investment. It also plans to seek goods, works, and other services including information technology; communication, weather, monitoring, and laboratory equipment; vehicles; boats; earth-moving equipment; buildings; and related work.

Firms that want to be included on a mailing list of invitations to bid are invited to contact the address below.
