Upgrade of the Turbine Building of the Padu Hydro Station

DOMLEC now invites sealed bids from eligible bidders for the Upgrade of the Turbine Building of the Padu Hydro station. The works include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Description and Extent of Works
    • DOMLEC operates three hydro power plants along the Roseau River namely, Laudat, New Trafalgar and Padu with installed capacities of 1240, 1760 (X2) and 940 (X2) KVA respectively. During the passage of Hurricane Maria, the Padu power Station (Padu Turbine House) and its conveyance system suffered major damage. The roof and doors of the building were destroyed allowing the building to be flooded resulting in extensive damage to the generating equipment therein. The Diversion Weir across the river upstream of the Trafalgar Power Station and about 400 feet of pipeline downstream was washed away. A section of pipeline across the Ravine Fond was also dislocated due to the compromise of the support structure
  • The client requires the upgrading of the Padu turbine/generator building to improve its hurricane/severe weather resilience in the following ways:
    • Upgrade the roofing system to concrete type roofing to mitigate the intrusion of wind, landslide or waterborne debris into the turbine/generator building, thus damage of the equipment inside
    • Construction of the requisite retaining wall to protect the building from lateral damage by landslides and river action

Consideration will be limited to firms or joint ventures of firms, which are legally incorporated or otherwise organised in, and have their principal place of business in an eligible country and are either:

  • more than 50% beneficially owned by a citizen or citizens and/or a bona fide resident or residents of an eligible country, or by a body corporate or bodies corporate meeting these requirements; or
  • owned or controlled by the Government of an eligible country provided that it is legally and financially autonomous and operated under the commercial law of an eligible country and otherwise meets the eligibility requirements of the CDB Guidelines for Procurement (2006)

Deadline for receipt of applications is September 17, 2020.
