These contracts will be jointly financed by the WB and Government of the Republic of Armenia. Bidding process willbe governed by the World Bank's rules and procedures. 2.        The "Water Sector Projects Implementation Unit" SA(WSPIU SA) now invites sealed bids from eligible bidders for the following works: earth works; concreteworks; Pipes and pipe reinforcement steel structures; insulation works; monitoring equipment etc. (as perBOQ) The Sites are located at: Lot#1: at the distance of 65km from Yerevanand 10 km from the settlement Goght (Kotayk Marz) Lot#2: at the distance of65-78 km from Yerevan and 23 km from the settlement Goght (KotaykMarz) Lot#3: at the distance of 12 km from Geghadir, Hatsavan and Voghjaberd settlements (KotaykMarz) The Intended Completion Date for the whole of the Works shall be: - Lot 1: 24 (twenty four) months including vegetation period; - Lot 2: 12 (twelve) months; and - Lot3: 14 (fourteen)months. Note: Lot 1 (Reconstruction ofGeghardalich dam, rehabilitation of diversion canal of the spillway, irrigation outlet, diversion canal; subsidiary canal) is for reconstruction of the dam and rehabilitationofappurtenant structures. Reconstruction shall be so organized not to hinder irrigation of the lands supplied from the reservoir.The duration is 24 calendar months. During that period the Contractor will be entitled for technological break during filling ofthe reservoir and irrigation season, severe weather conditions at the site. Considering the irrigation season, the works under Lot1 may be actually carried out from September 15 to March inclusive. However, as the reservoir is located at the elevation of 2710m,the access to the site and civil works are practically impossible from December to March. So actually, the Contractor will haveunder its possession only the period from Septemberto November. The civil works beyond that period will be possible onlyatdiversion canal and spillway chute. In case of good organization of civil works, construction of the concrete parapet will bepossible when the water level in the reservoir draws down below parapet foundation level. Under Lot2 (Construction of13.355 km section of the main pipeline (l=9840 m, d=500mm steel pipes and l= 3510 m, d= 500mm GRP pipes)) the main pipeline from DM0+00 to DM133+00 will be constructed. Theduration is 12 calendar months. During that period the Contractor will be entitled to a technological break due to heavy winterconditions as that site is located at the elevation of 2700-2000m. Under Lot 3(Construction of 12.711 km section of the main pipeline (l=8390 m, d=500mm and l=2421m, d=  400mm steel pipes and l=1900 m, d= 400mm GRP pipes))the main pipeline from DM130+00 to DM258+64 andGeghadir-Hatsavan branch will be constructed (Construction of3,637 km long Geghadir-Hatsavan pipeline (l=2411 m, d= 219 mm and l=1226 m, d=250 mm steel pipes).
