The Government of Pakistan has obtained a credit from the World Bank for Water Sector Capacity Building Project. Part of the proceeds of the Credit would be used for financing the consulting services for preparation of Proposed Tarbela 4th Hydropower Project (T4thHP) to be implemented by the Water and Power Development Authority of the Ministry of Water and Power. The objective of T4thHP is to install hydropower plant on 4th tunnel of Tarbela Dam. The Tullen-4 is constructed with concrete with 45 to 36 feet diameter and it is about 3000 feet long. The current studies show that a power plant of about 1000 MW can be installed on this tunnel. Currently the dam has power units on Tunnels 1-3 with total generation capacity of 3478 MW.
The main objective of the proposed consultancy services is to support Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) in project preparation studies, preparation of detailed design, bidding documents and PC-I, including engineering, economic, environmental and social studies and construction supervision of all works and activities included under the Tarbela Dam 4th Extension Hydropower Project (T4thHP). These works will be carried out according to international standards, which will form the basis for project appraisal by the World Bank and the Government of Pakistan.
The consulting services are thus divided into two phases: Assignment A (Duration (18 months) covers support for the preparation of detailed design, bidding documents, PC-I and project preparation studies including investigation, technical and engineering, economic, financing as well as environmental and social studies and advance procurement activities; and Assignment B (About Duration 6 years inclusive 2 years Warranty Period) for construction supervision, contract management and support for project management and implementation of the environmental and social management plans. The contract for Assignment A would be financed from the proceeds of the Credit for WCAP. The contract for Assignment B would be financed from the World Bank after its approval.
