Pakistan denies Andritz complaint over bidding for 106-MW Golen Gol

LAHORE, Pakistan 6/12/12 (PennWell) -- Pakistani officials have fully endorsed an evaluation conducted by the Water and Power Development Authority naming consultants for work at the 106-MW Golen Gol hydropower project, HydroWorld.com has learned.

The review was performed after Andritz, which entered a bid for Golen Gol's electrical and mechanical works, lodged a complaint against WAPDA after it named Rainpower ASA as lowest bidder.

Pakistan's Ministry of Water and Power disagreed with Andritz's complaint, however, saying, "with the exhaustive deliberations exercised by WAPDA, the conclusion arrived at vis-a-vis Rainpower Consortium's tender being the most advantageous for the project is appropriate in the given conditions."

The ministry also directed WAPDA to take necessary action to award the contract, saying delays in completing the project could inflict losses of up US$53 million per year.

The Golen Gol project is being funded by the Saudi Fund for Development (SFD), Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFD) and Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

HydroWorld.com reported in May that WAPDA was soliciting bids for the construction of a transmission line that would carry power from the project.
