Deadline approaching: UNDP seeks studies of micro-hydro plants in DRC

Feasibility studies are sought by 26 June for four micro-hydro schemes.

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) invites requests for proposals by 26 June from qualified consultants to prepare technical feasibility studies for four micro-hydropower plants in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The studies for the two projects are offered in separate lots. Lot 1 is for the technical studies for a plant at Mabinza on the river Rubi to supply the Aketi Centre in the province of Bas-Uélé, and for a plant at Wede on the river Wede at the port of Niangara sur Uele to allow for the electrification of the Niangara Centre in the northeastern province of Haut-Uélé. Lot 2 will entail technical studies for a run-of-river scheme at Mambasa on the Ituri stream to supply the Irumu Centre in Irumu, in the province of Ituri, and for a plant at Yame on the Yame stream to allow electrification of the Bagbuzi Centre in Banalia in the north-central province of Tshopo.
