CEET launches national tender to rehabilitate Kpimé’s hydropower plant

(Togo First) - Using its own funds, Togo’s power utility, Compagnie Energie Electrique du Togo (CEET), will rehabilitate Kpimé’s hydropower plant. This infrastructure has an installed capacity of 1.6MW which is 1% of the country’s demand.

A national tender was launched to recruit a firm to carry out the works. Firms applying must have carried out a similar task, both in size and complexity, in the past five years.

According to the CEET, firms with access to public procurements that have an execution rate of less than 70% cannot participate in the tender.

In addition to the Kpimé dam, the government plans to develop, under its national development plan (PND), an energy program that will help “tap into the country’s hydropower potential through the construction of the dams of Tététou (50MW), Danyi-Konda (10 MW), Baghan (6 MW), Landa-Pozanda (4 MW)”.

According to the authorities, focusing on developing renewable energies should enable access to more reliable and affordable power services.

Regarding the current tender, deadline for the submission of applications is January 31, 2019.
