Assignment Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development EBRD has extended a senior loan of up to USD 3.6 million to the Dushanbe State Unitary Communal Enterprise, SUCE Trolleybus (the Company) in order to improve the condition of electric public transport and air quality in the City of Dushanbe (the City or Dushanbe), towards the cost of implementing the Project. Dushanbe, with a population of around 782,000, is the capital and largest city in Tajikistan. SUCE Trolleybus is solely owned by the City of Dushanbe. The Company owns two trolleybus depots with a total capacity of 175 standard vehicles and an energy supply service department, which operates and maintains a set of electrical substations to power the Company’s fleet. As of January 1, 2014 the fleet totalled 164 units, of which 75 are in service daily on 9 routes. The infrastructure was originally created to provide the trolleybus services on a far more extensive grid of 14 routes covering the whole area of Dushanbe (stretching for 256 km). The Company has 12 power substations, of which 9 are currently operational. The total nominal capacity of the stations is 21,3164kW. However, due to a shortage of financing trolleybus services were gradually consolidated to the current nine routes. As a result, the Company operates at about 50 per cent of potential capacity. The Project will involve rehabilitating up to 12 kilometres of trolleybus power distribution infrastructure and up to three traction power substations. The Bank has mobilised consultancy services to assess the electrical trolleybus infrastructure, review the Company's investment proposals, as well as to identify any essential complementary investments or actions required to gain full benefit from the proposed investment and update a specification compatible with the remaining equipment. A separate consultant was mobilised to review and incorporate the technical specifications and prepare the complete set of tender documents taking into account any reasonable requirements of the Client and the Bank, and shall ensure that documents are no-objected by the Bank prior to being issued. The Company now seeks to engage a consultant (the Consultant) to assist with procurement, implementation support and contract supervision of the Bank’s loan financing (the Assignment). The investment will finance further renewal of up to 20 km of trolleybus on-street power supply infrastructure, including poles and other spare parts. In addition up to four power substations will be rehabilitated, and related feeder cables will be replaced.
