Bahrain’s Electricity and Water Authority (EWA) has announced that it has received a high standard of bids from consultants wishing to take a principal role in setting-up nine 66kV substations in the Kingdom. These include tenders from Canada’s SNC-Lavalin and Ireland’s Esbi Engineering.
As per the tender notification, EWA proposes to complete the work on all the nine 66kV substations within the next five years. This requires consultants who are familiar with working on large scale projects under significant time pressure, with a proven track record in the power generation marketplace.
Initial comments from the Bahraini utility company explained that SNC-Lavalin has emerged as the lowest bidder, with a figure of US $5,488,023, followed by EsbiI Engineering’s $5,545,114.
The scope of work includes carrying out technical and engineering studies, preparing a range of project specifications and engineering designs, as well as evaluating offers and supervising the contractors during the period of implementation. The nine projects are set to play a key role in the delivery of Bahrain Economic Vision 2030, which has at its heart the full and comprehensive delivery of high-level utilities able to support and drive the kingdom’s proposed economic expansion.
