Technical Proposal for Preparation of " Upgrading study of Ritha khola micro hydro project located in Baglung district”

CHAPTER-1
INTRODUCTION
1.1 INVITATION OF PROPOSAL
This technical proposal has been prepared by Smart Consult Pvt. Ltd Hereinafter called the
consultants in response to an invitation to local consultants by the Government of Nepal, Ministry
of Population and Environment, Alternative Energy Promotion Center, Renewable Energy for
Rural Livelihood Program (RERL) Khumaltar, Lalitpur hereinafter called the client, Preparation
of " Upgrading study of Ritha khola micro hydro project located in Baglung district
". The consultants/we have thoroughly studied the Terms of Reference (ToR) for the aforesaid job
prepared by the client and have included, in this proposal, all those information as asked for in the
ToR, which is deemed necessary to objectively judge the consultants understanding of the ToR
and the capability to complete the job in a desired fashion. The key information included in this
proposal are: the identification of various tasks to be completed, the proposed methodology to
complete those tasks, a detailed work schedule, proposed manpower with the manning schedule
and the detailed curriculum vitae of the proposed personnel. The consultant very much looks
forward to exhibit its technical competence if awarded this opportunity to serve client in this
particular assignment.

1.2 PROJECT BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Alternative Energy Promotion Centre (AEPC) is the apex government body under
the Ministry of Population and Environment established for promotion of Renewable Energy
Technologies. Under AEPC, UNDP‐GEF‐RERL, is a program that has been under
implementation, from 1st July, 2014 upon the successful completion of Rural Energy
Development Program (REDP). The objective of the program is to remove barriers to
increased utilization of renewable energy resources in rural Nepal in order to support
technical, economic, environmental and social development of people in the rural areas and to
reduce GHG emissions. RERL has been providing technical assistance to mini/micro hydro
power promotion activities for its sustainable operation. Linking surplus energy from
mini/micro hydro plant to nearby market centers through interconnected area grid could
increase sustainable operation of mini/ micro plants, as sale of electricity to the markets
generates good revenue.

Micro hydro plants in Baglung district has good potential of selling electricity to
towns connected by mid-hill highway. Mid- hill highway has created a number of
electricity hungry towns. For example, Burtibang bazzar is a town along mid-hill highway
that has huge demand for electricity. Close to Burtibang bazzar, a number of micro hydro
plants installed by the then REDP and AEPC are located. These plants have good
possibility to earn revenue by selling electricity to Burtibang Bazzar. This can be
achieved by (1) Connecting all the micro hydro plants in one network as local grid and
sell electricity under its existing capacity. (2) Upgrade some micro hydro plants and connect
in one network and sell electricity with increased capacity. In this regard, as according to (2),
RERL intends to conduct micro hydro upgrading study of a plant named Ritha Khola micro
hydro plant. Preliminary investigation shows that this site carries the possibility of upgrading
to higher installed capacity. Moreover, one very interesting feature of this plant is that it is
very close to Burtibang bazzar and carries potential to sell electricity to Burtibang bazzar
on its own even without being connected to an area grid network.

The consultants have reviewed thoroughly the Terms of Reference (ToR).The RFP and
information to the consultants are quite explicit, provide a clear and concise statement of
objectives for service and the assignment objectives and provide adequate definition of the scope
of the works required to deliver services to the project

Comments on Data/Facilities/ Services

 It is suggested to develop information management system/ communication system for the


sharing of information/ standards/ policies of such micro/mini hydropower projects to
make easy access for the consultant. Again, regular discussions, supervision,
coordination will make work easier and project completion on time.
 Background information of the mini hydropower project and brief review of previous
any study is missing
 No linkage of accessibility analysis in reporting.

(Smart Consult Pvt. Ltd ) 36


Technical Proposal for Preparation of " Upgrading study of Ritha khola micro hydro project located in Baglung district”

 Preparation of the Initial Environmental Assessment (IEE) of all services and facilities
will be time consuming and lengthy. TOR is silent about the process of using tools for
this.
 It would be better to provide the basic information about the geography, line agencies
NGO/INGOs working in area.
 A single chart depicting time, methodology, experts, scopes and budget limitation under
each objective head will help to understand and analyze the project in detail, which is
missing.
 Generalization and hypothetical assumption documentation may be a big problem than a
concrete and concise competitiveness during selection without clear information.
