  • Latin bank approves funds to refurbish Haiti's 54-MW Peligre

    The Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) approved a proposal December 3 to grant US$12.5 million to Haiti's electric utility to help fund rehabilitation of the 54-MW Peligre hydroelectric project.

    In January, IADB approved a US$750,000 technical cooperation donation to Haiti to design the rehab program for Peligre, which serves the Port-au-Prince area but has diminished generating capacity due to deteriorating equipment. (HNN 10/7/08) The government announced a contract in March to Gregory L. Morris Engineering P.S.C. of Puerto Rico to study sedimentation and to design equipment rehabilitation for Peligre, which was built in 1971.

    The current funding to Electricite d'Haiti will provide US$12.5 million of the US$17 million cost of the first phase of major rehabilitation of electro-mechanical equipment to extend the useful life of the plant at least 25 years. The second and third phases are expected to be financed by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries Fund for International Development and IADB.

    During the first phase, the first of three turbines and other electrical equipment are to be refurbished. The second phase of the total US$40 million project is to include rehabilitation of a second turbine and a transmission line linking Peligre to Port-au-Prince. The third phase is to include rehabilitation of the third turbine.

    Proposed work is to include diagnosis of electro-mechanical equipment, including turbine-generators, controls, and auxiliaries; defining of rehabilitation to extend project life, including economic and environmental viability; and designing of a hiring strategy and solicitation documents and contracts to carry out rehabilitation.
