Montenegro Water Sector Reform - Plan for the Reform of the Montenegrin Coastal Region

 | Published October 2, 2015  -  Deadline October 23, 2015
cpvs

13/10/2015: The procurement notice has been updated. Please refer to the revised description of the Legal Expert.


Project Description:

In 2008, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD or Bank) provided a EUR 18 million sovereign loan to the Montenegrin regional water supply company, Regionalni Vodovod Crnogorsko Primorje, (PEW) for the rehabilitation and construction of the Regional Water Supply System (RWSS) to provide potable water from Lake Skadar to the municipalities along the Montenegrin coast. The RWSS was designed based on the assumption that in the near to middle-term future, the majority of the Coastal Region would be connected to the main distribution pipeline, which is the situation now. However, in 2014 only 16 per cent of the distribution capacity had been utilised.

It is understood that in the case of full utilisation of the regional infrastructure recently completed, the majority of the above problems will be reduced or disappear. Therefore, in order for the optimal solution to materialise, be implemented and have the buy-in from all stakeholders, a detailed review of the regional institutional set-up is required. Furthermore, a well-designed regional strategic policy should be designed to ensure long term sustainability of the system.

In parallel, the Bank has now been approached by PEW and the six local public water companies that operate in the coastal area of Montenegro (Ulcinj, Bar, Budva, Kotor, Tivat and Herceg Novi) (ViKs), to assist with the financing of identified investments in order to rehabilitate and upgrade their infrastructure (the Project). The total Project cost amounts to approximately EUR 20 million, which will be fully funded by EBRD.


Assignment Description:

Taking into account the current status in relation to the utilisation of the RWSS and the proposed new Project, the Bank now intends to engage a consulting company (Consultant) to assist with the preparation and implementation of the reform and reorganization of coastal water sector by developing a plan for the assessment and reorganization of the water sector on the Montenegrin Coast (Plan or Assignment).

The expected outcome of the Assignment is for the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism (MSDT) to have a plan with sufficient information to decide on a reform of the water sector on the Montenegrin Coast.


The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:


1.
Prepare a draft Plan for the reorganization of the water supply sector on the Montenegrin Coast.

2.
The draft Plan should be presented to the key stakeholders involved in the water sector: including a minimum of ViKs, PEW, municipalities, MSDT and the Government of Macedonia.

3.
The Consultant shall, together with PEW's project implementation team, prepare a document that will include a: i), detailed legal framework, ii) next steps for the implementation of the new institutional set up, iii) analysis of ViKs' and PEW's activities, iv) detailed structural and functional schemes of Viks and PEW, v) and a staff rationalization plan.

4.
The Consultant shall prepare the ViKs for the implementation phases of the Plan, including any staff reorganisation.

The Consultant will be responsible for the development of the Plan and for obtaining, where possible, approval of the Plan by the relevant stakeholders. The Consultant is not responsible for the GoM approval of the Plan, nor the implementation. The MSDT will be responsible for obtaining GoM approval of the Plan and for its implementation.


Status of Selection Process:

Interested firms or groups of firms are hereby invited to submit expressions of interest.


Assignment Start Date and Duration:

The Assignment is expected to start in mid-November 2015 and has an estimated overall duration of 4 months.


Cost Estimate for the Assignment:

The Consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the special status of the Bank as an IFI and state this to the Bank in their response to the Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a Consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense.

Enhancement of Registry of Small Rivers for Small Hydropower Projects Potential of up to 10 MW

 | Published October 23, 2015  -  Deadline November 10, 2015
cpvs

Notice Amended on 28 October 2015 (submission deadline extended) and 30 October 2015. Consultants to note as follows: An information session in relation to this Assignment will be held in Prague on Tuesday, 24 November 2015. All shortlisted consultants will be invited to attend. Full details will be provided to shortlisted consultants together with the formal Request for Proposal (RFP) package. The Assignment is time-sensitive. RFP is expected to be launched on 20 November 2015 with deadline for submission of proposals on 21 December 2015. Background: According to the Montenegrin Energy Law all hydropower plants below 10 MW of installed capacity are considered to be small hydropower plants (“SHPPs”). The installed capacity of ten existing small hydropower plants amounts to 10.5 MW with an average annual production of about 25 GWh. In 2014 the Government signed concessions agreements for the construction of additional ten small hydro power plants with total installed capacity of 23,324 MW and projected annual production of 86.289 GWh. Montenegro has relatively abundant water resources given its relatively small size. Although two large hydropower plants produce 76 percent of electricity in the country, the total energy they produce (1,800 GWh) is only about 18 percent of the total hydropower potential. In case of SHPPs the utilisation of the potential is even lower. The Ministry of Economy of Montenegro (the “Ministry”) is aware of the high unutilised potential and promotes utilisation of hydropower potential through issuing concessions for SHPPs. During 2011 and 2012 the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) provided technical assistance to Montenegro to develop a Small Hydro Power Registry for Northern Part of Montenegro concentrating on small water streams with a potential installed output of up to 1 MW. This initial study led to 8 new SHPP being planned for construction, with two operational by the end of 2014. The Bank has now received a new request to support an enhancement of the Registry for the SHPPs of installed output between 1 and 10 MW in the territory of Central and Northern Montenegro. Assignment Description: The EBRD intends to engage a consultancy firm (the “Consultant”) to assist in Enhancement of the Registry of Small Rivers in Central and Northern Montenegro to Cover Small Hydropower Potential of up to 10 MW (the “Assignment”). The Assignment will provide the EBRD, the Ministry of Economy, local municipalities and potential investment project sponsors with a fundamental decision making document that explains the possible methods of addressing the future use of hydropower potential on the territory of Montenegro and individual municipalities. The Consultant is expected to carry out the following tasks: · Identify water streams in the area of interest § Identify the water streams at municipality level. § Identify water streams on the territory of listed Municipalities that meet the eligibility criteria of the Montenegrin Energy Law. § Identify potential conflicts with the existing or potential users of the same space and/or same water stream, and define the potential water streams suitability for using hydro energy. § Identify potential conflicts with environmental regulations relevant to individual water streams. The assessment of potential sites shall include an identification of environmentally and socially sensitive areas that must be excluded from the registry. The selection of potential sites shall take into account the objectives of the applicable EU directive (in particular the water framework directive and the habitats directive). § Determine the basic parameters of hydro-graphic and physical-geographic characteristics of the catchment areas of potential water streams at municipality level. § Connect characteristics of the catchment areas with water stream GIS layer of Montenegro. § Investigate the effect of international obligations in regard to boundary water flows (if relevant). § Assess the compliance with the EBRD Eligibility Criteria for Small Hydro Power Projects, including a description of the conditions for the environmental and social acceptability of the selected sites. · Develop the hydrological study of identified streams § Based on basic hydro-graphic and physical-geographic characteristics of catchment areas, determine the longitudinal profile of the water stream, hypsometric curve of the related catchment areas and other relevant physical characteristics of the water streams. § Conduct 6 three-monthly direct hydrometric measurements of water flow rates and water level measurement by limnigraph (18 months in total) at identified locations. § Compare measured results with results of previous measurements of the same water streams or other relevant water stream if such data are available. § Calculate the correlation of the measured flow locations on listed rivers with the nearest long-time flow measurements prepared by ZHMS. § Calculate the flow duration curves of the locations, using data obtained from measurements taken as part of this assignment. · Determine the location for SHPP(s) on identified rivers and implementation of gathered data into the existing Registry § Based on the database of rivers at municipal level and the flow duration curves for these rivers, conduct desk review of the available geological/geomorphological data of terrain where small hydro power plants could be constructed. § Preliminarily define the SHPPs and water intakes locations on identified rivers. § Preliminarily calculate the installed power and energy production of potential SHPPs. § Assess the available infrastructure for each potential SHHP location (road access, distance from the nearest power grid connection point etc.) § Calculate the economic data of selected SHPPs. § Implement gathered data into the existing Registry. · To disseminate the results of the assignment. Status of Selection Process: Interested firms or groups of firms are hereby invited to submit expressions of interest. Assignment Start Date and Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in February 2016 and has an estimated overall duration of 30 months. Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 625,550.00 (exclusive of VAT). Subject to availability of funding.
