Haiti utility courts contractors to refurbish 54-MW Peligre

Electricite d'Haiti invites inquiries from suppliers and contractors interested in rehabilitation of the 54-MW Peligre hydroelectric project.

The Inter-American Development Bank approved a US$12.5 million grant in December to the electric utility to help fund the work. (HNN 12/5/08) The government announced a contract in 2007 to Gregory L. Morris Engineering P.S.C. of Puerto Rico to study sedimentation and to design equipment rehabilitation for Peligre.

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.
