Kyzylorda Water - Corporate Development Programme

 | Published November 18, 2014  -  Deadline December 19, 2014
cpvs

Corporate Development Programme Assignment Description: the drinking water supply and wastewater management sectors in Kazakhstan have suffered from severe under-investment for more than 20 years. Water supply operations are currently characterised by severely deteriorated water and wastewater assets; high operations and maintenance costs; unreliable water supply service; and, low institutional capacity. Kyzylorda, with a population of more than 250,000 inhabitants, has 541 km of water supply network that includes water mains, district distributions and yard distributions. About 69 per cent of the City’s population is connected to the system. The water supply network’s average depreciation ratio is currently about 70 per cent—the national average is 64 per cent. This is a major factor causing a high level of technical losses, which are currently 27 per cent. In general, the current water supply system is characterised by the low efficiency of the pumping equipment, overflowing of wells, high power consumption and frequent leakages in the transmission and distribution network. The sewerage network of 308 km is connected to a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) with a daily capacity of 70,000 m3. Unlike the water supply network, it covers only about 53 per cent of the City population, as a significant number of private residential houses are not connected. At present, only up to 43 per cent of the nominal capacity of the WWTP is utilised. The sewerage system is characterised by heavy power consumption, inefficient pumping equipment, absence of metering and a lack of pre-treatment facilities at industrial facilities. No major investments have been made in the system over the last decades, which results in high clogging rates, network failures and inadequate wastewater treatment (4 breakdowns per km of the network in 2013), hence posing a risk to the environment and the population. As part of the effort to tackle the above outlined issues, the State Communal Enterprise Kyzylorda Su Zhuyesi (the Company or the Client) approached the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the Bank or the EBRD) with a request to finance the priority investments in rehabilitation and modernisation of its water supply and wastewater management facilities resulting in enhanced operations efficiency, reduction in losses and improvements in environmental standards (the Project). The Project will enable the Company to address the above outlined issues and improve its water and wastewater services by financing priority investments for the rehabilitation and modernisation of the water supply and wastewater management infrastructure. The Project will also result in increased energy efficiency, a reduction in losses, and improvements in environmental standards. This will stimulate the process of commercialisation of water and wastewater operations in general, thus supporting the sector reforms and having a significant demonstration effect in the country. In parallel with the hardware investments, the Project will contribute to the development and institutional strengthening of the Company in respect of procurement, corporatisation, credit worthiness enhancement and an improvement of the environmental situation in the City. The Company intends to engage a firm or a group of firms (the Consultant), to assist the Company and later the private management company (the Manager) (to be selected during the Project implementation period) operating under the terms of the Public Service Management Contract (the PSMC) to improve the Company’s commercial standing, service and environmental and social performance.The Consultant will identify and implement the necessary corporate, financial and operational improvements required to meet the related covenants included in the EBRD finance documents (the Assignment). This will be achieved via the following major institutional development actions: - Review and introduction, including tender preparation, evaluation of tenders and contracting of a performance based PSMC between the Company, the Akimat and a private operator with the aim to advance the management performance for more cost effective services with less energy waste. The draft PSMC has been developed by the Project Feasibility Study consultant and will be available to the Consultant upon signing the consultancy services contract. - Development and implementation of a Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme for the Company in a close co-operation with the Manager. - In a close co-operation with the Manager, development and adoption of a medium-term focused Corporate Development Plan for the Company and to improve its corporate planning capacity to assist its ongoing transition towards a self-sustaining entity and commercial operations, as well as implementing the Environmental and Social Action Plan developed for the Company. - In a close co-operation with the Manager, development and introduction of a Management Information System. - In a close co-operation with the Manager, development and implementation of the Stakeholder Participation Programme aimed at increasing public participation in the provision of water and wastewater services (service quality, rehabilitation activities, tariffs integrating poverty and social issues) and raising public awareness on issues related to the project implementation. The Consultant will co-operate closely with the Manager and with the City’s and Oblast’s Akimats (the Mayors) to implement the covenants stipulated under the signed Project Support Agreement. Additionally, the Consultant shall assist the Company in the analysis of the baseline social situation of the vulnerable section of the population and the impact of the project on these groups, and in connection to this assess any impact of the project on the equality between men and women.

cpvs

Executing Agency (Client): Pavlodar Tram Management Company The Client Contact Person: Krisa Alexander, President JSC “Tramvainoe Upravlenie Goroda Pavlodara” 140000, Industrial zone Severnaya, 258 City of Pavlodar, the Republic of Kazakhstan The EBRD Contact Person: Sophie Medert, Advisor, Technical Cooperation Team European Bank for Reconstruction and Development One Exchange Square London EC2A 2JN Tel: + 44 20 7338 7371 E-mail: mederts@ebrd.com Project Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD” or the “Bank”) has extended a senior loan of up to KZT 2.5 billion (EUR 10 million equivalent) to the Pavlodar Tram Management Company (the “Client”), who is fully owned by the Pavlodar Oblast Akimat (the “Oblast Akimat”). The proceeds of the Loan will be used for i) procurement of up to 25 new units of modern energy efficient trams; (ii) rehabilitation of the tram infrastructure including catenary and junctions; and (iii) balance sheet restructuring (the “Project”). The loan will be split into 2 tranches. The Project also includes co-financing of up to USD 13.5 million from the Oblast Akimat and/or the Government of Kazakhstan (the “GOK”) under the Enhanced Partnership Framework Arrangements (the “EPFA”). According to the Law on Transport, the Ministry of Transport and Communication (the “Ministry”) is the state body that carries out governance in the area of transport. The Ministry is in charge of drafting and implementing normative legal acts, national standards and technical rules regulating transport, defining the concessionary fares, the social groups who benefit from them and the implementation conditions and safety and security of transport. However, compensation for transportation of concessionary passengers on urban services is the liability of individual cities. The Department of the Municipal Utilities, Public Transport and Automobile Roads of the City (the "Department") has the responsibility of strategic planning, investment, provision and regulation in the public transport sector in the City. In the case of Pavlodar, the Department is the policy maker in the public transport sector. Regular public transport service is provided with two modes in Pavlodar: road-based buses and minibuses, and rail-based trams. There is one tram operator: the Company, and 9 bus operators, including one public bus company owned by the Oblast Akimat rendering services on social regional routes. Assignment Descriptions: The legal framework of the Republic of Kazakhstan (“RK”) for transport, provided in the Law on Transport as of 21.09.1994, No.156, envisages an option to provide subsidies by the Government of the RK to transport operators in order to compensate for the provision of services that are not profitable under existing regulated tariffs on socially important routes. According to the approved methodology a city has to approve a list of socially important routes. Then an operator rendering services on such route can apply for compensational subsidy by providing his actual cost of service (profit is not eligible) and actual fare revenue collected during previous calendar year. Based on the information provided, the city makes an allocation in the next year budget. After compensational subsidy is budgeted, the operator has to send monthly or quarterly reports on actual cost and fare revenue collected on the particular route. The difference will then have to be compensated. In practice this loss-compensation mechanism does not work due to number of reasons. The Client now intends to retain a consulting company (the "Consultant”) to revise the public transport strategy for Pavlodar (the “Assignment”).

Kyzylorda District Heating - Corporate Development Programme

 | Published January 27, 2015  -  Deadline March 5, 2015
cpvs

Executing Agency (Client): The State Communal Enterprise Kyzylordateploelektrotsentr, (the “Company”). Assignment Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) has developed a project (the “Project”) together with the State Communal Enterprise Kyzylordateploelektrotsentr (the “Company”) and the Akimat of the City of Kyzylorda (the “Akimat”) to upgrade the district heating (“DH”) system in the City of Kyzylorda (“Kyzylorda” or the “City”) in the Republic of Kazakhstan. District Heating (DH) is a major component in Kazakhstan’s energy balance, particularly given the recent history of rapid demand growth due to rapid urbanisation in major metropolitan and industrial centres. DH remains the most cost-effective way of supplying heat to the majority of people in post-Soviet cities with lower-middle income urban residents in high-density apartment buildings as main beneficiaries. Kazakhstan’s DH sector is characterised by a history of underinvestment over the last 20 years. This has resulted in a stock of ageing and inefficient assets with poor environmental performance that struggle to meet demand reliably. The centralised heat supply networks in Kazakhstan are depreciated by 80 per cent on average and are under particular strain. As a result, average technical losses that qualify to be passed through the heat distribution tariff are about 26 per cent. The Company is 100 per cent owned by the City Akimat. The Company operates a combined heat and power plant (“CHP”), boiler houses and a district heating network in the City. Most of the electricity and heat generation facilities as well as network are significantly deteriorated. Due to limited financial sources, the Company’s investments into the DH system have been minimal and were aimed only to keep the current system’s operations from collapsing. Investment is mainly relying on the limited state budget allocations. The level of the plant, transmission and distribution network deterioration is about 70-75 per cent. The Project will enable the Company to address the above outlined issues and improve its DH services by financing priority investments for the rehabilitation and modernisation of its infrastructure. The Project will result in increased energy efficiency, a reduction in heat and hot water losses, and improvements in environmental standards, including a reduction of CO2 emissions. This will stimulate the process of commercialisation of DH operations in general, thus supporting the sector reforms and having a significant demonstration effect in the country. In parallel with the hardware investments, the Project will contribute to the development and institutional strengthening of the Company in respect of procurement, corporatisation, creditworthiness enhancement and an improvement of the environmental situation in the City. The Company and the Akimat, and a future Management company, (to be selected during the Project implementation period) operating under the terms of the Public Service Management Contract (“PSMC”) (the “Manager”), require a firm or group of firms (the “Consultant”) to assist the Company to improve its commercial standing, service and environmental and social performance.

Kyzylorda Water - Project Implementation Support, Engineering Design Services and Contract Supervision

 | Published November 18, 2014  -  Deadline December 19, 2014
cpvs

Project Implementation Support, Engineering Design Services and Contract Supervision Assignment Description: the drinking water supply and wastewater management sectors in Kazakhstan have suffered from severe under-investment for more than 20 years. Water supply operations are currently characterised by severely deteriorated water and wastewater assets; high operations and maintenance costs; unreliable water supply service; and, low institutional capacity. Kyzylorda, with a population of more than 250,000 inhabitants, has 541 km of water supply network that includes water mains, district distributions and yard distributions. About 69 per cent of the City’s population is connected to the system. The water supply network’s average depreciation ratio is currently about 70 per cent—the national average is 64 per cent. This is a major factor causing a high level of technical losses, which are currently 27 per cent. In general, the current water supply system is characterised by the low efficiency of the pumping equipment, overflowing of wells, high power consumption and frequent leakages in the transmission and distribution network. The sewerage network of 308 km is connected to a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) with a daily capacity of 70,000 m3. Unlike the water supply network, it covers only about 53 per cent of the City population, as a significant number of private residential houses are not connected. At present, only up to 43 per cent of the nominal capacity of the WWTP is utilised. The sewerage system is characterised by heavy power consumption, inefficient pumping equipment, absence of metering and a lack of pre-treatment facilities at industrial facilities. No major investments have been made in the system over the last decades, which results in high clogging rates, network failures and inadequate wastewater treatment (4 breakdowns per km of the network in 2013), hence posing a risk to the environment and the population. As part of the effort to tackle the above outlined issues, the State Communal Enterprise Kyzylorda Su Zhuyesi (the Company or the Client) approached the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the Bank or the EBRD) with a request to finance the priority investments in rehabilitation and modernisation of its water supply and wastewater management facilities resulting in enhanced operations efficiency, reduction in losses and improvements in environmental standards (the Project). The Project will enable the Company to improve its water and wastewater services by financing priority investments for the rehabilitation and modernisation of the water supply and wastewater management infrastructure, which includes the following: - Installation of hydraulic modelling, GIS, and SCADA systems. - Procurement and installation of bulk water flow meters, water pressure control equipment, and borehole pumps. - Construction of water purification facility. - Rehabilitation of sewer. - Wastewater pumping stations modernisation. - Construction of main interception of the wastewater pumping stations. - Procurement of the operation, maintenance and water quality control equipment. The Bank’s investments will be procured in accordance with EBRD Procurement Policies and Rules for Public Sector Projects. A Project Implementation Unit (PIU) will be formed in the Company, with representatives from the City, which will manage all procurement, as well as installation, construction and implementation of the investments. The Company intends to engage a consultancy firm or consortium of consultancy firms ( the Consultant) to support the Company in all aspects of the Project implementation.

Kyzylorda District Heating - Project Implementation Support, Engineering Design Services and Contract Supervision

 | Published January 26, 2015  -  Deadline March 4, 2015
cpvs

Executing Agency (Client): The State Communal Enterprise Kyzylordateploelektrotsentr, (the “Company”).
 
Background:
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) together with the State Communal Enterprise Kyzylordateploelektrotsentr (the “Company”) and the Akimat of the City of Kyzylorda (the “Akimat”) has developed a project (the “Project”) to upgrade the district heating (“DH”) system in the City of Kyzylorda (“Kyzylorda” or the “City”) in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
 
DH is a major component in Kazakhstan’s energy balance, particularly given the recent history of rapid demand growth due to rapid urbanisation in major metropolitan and industrial centres. DH remains the most cost-effective way of supplying heat to the majority of people in post-Soviet cities with lower-middle income urban residents in high-density apartment buildings as main beneficiaries.
 
Kazakhstan’s DH sector is characterised by a history of underinvestment over the last 20 years. This has resulted in a stock of ageing and inefficient assets with poor environmental performance that struggle to meet demand reliably. The centralised heat supply networks in Kazakhstan are depreciated by 80 per cent on average and are under particular strain.
 
The Company operates a combined heat and power plant (“CHP”), boiler houses and a district heating network in the City. Most of the electricity and heat generation facilities as well as network are significantly deteriorated. Due to limited financial sources, the Company’s investments into the DH system have been minimal and were aimed only to keep the current system’s operations from collapsing. Investment is mainly relying on the limited state budget allocations.
 
The Project will enable the Company to address the issues outlined above  and improve its DH services by financing priority investments for the rehabilitation and modernisation of its infrastructure through a Priority Investment Programme (“PIP”) comprising the following major components: implementation of SCADA system and installation of frequency regulators; rehabilitation  of networks; installation of individual heating sub-stations (“IHS”) and internal domestic hot water (“DHW”) installations; development of hydraulic model; replacement of turbo generators.
 
The investments will be procured in accordance with the EBRD Procurement Policies and Rules for Public Sector Projects. A Project Implementation Unit (“PIU”) will be formed in the Company, with representatives from the Akimat, which will manage all procurement, as well as installation, construction and implementation of the investments.
 
The Company intends to hire a consultant (hereinafter the “Consultant”) to support the Company to set up and oversee the PIU in all aspects of Project implementation. Such support will include preparation of design, technical specifications, tender documentation, assistance with tendering, tender evaluation and contract finalisation, administration and supervision of the contract implementation, as well as set up of the disbursement system.
 
Assignment Description
The overall objective of the assignment is to facilitate the timely and effective implementation of the Project by rendering assistance to the Company  in the implementation of the Project, including design, all aspects of procurement and disbursement and environmental and social (“E&S”) requirements.
Specific objectives of the assignment shall include, inter alia:
  • Review and make recommendations to the Project Procurement Plan, including updating of initial cost estimates and setting priorities between the Project components.
  • Review the existing designs and/or prepare missing designs for the heat production facilities and the heat transmission/distribution networks rehabilitation in accordance with Kazakh construction norms and requirements for procurement of works. Prepare “Reference/preliminary design” for Supply and Installation of turbo generators and equipment.
  • Assist the Company in developing tender documents (including, but not limited to, design, requirements and technical specifications, EHSS requirements for contractors), carrying out tender procedure, preparing evaluation report and contract, and submit the necessary documents to the Company and EBRD for their concurrence and “no-objection”.
  • Provide overall project management support to the Company to co-ordinate, manage, monitor and evaluate all aspects of the Project.
  • Ensure that the Company l arranges payments to the contractor, to whom payment has been certified, to ensure that all such payments are made in due time, and that appropriate control and record systems are in place to ensure compliance with financiers and the country reporting requirements [to be clarified].
  • Provide support to and  supervision of works and administration of contracts.
  • Support the arrangement of timely disbursements under the contracts.
 
Assignment Start Date and Duration: The assignment is expected to start in 1Q 2015 and have a duration of 36 months.
 
Maximum Budget available for the Assignment: EUR 650,000; Exclusive of VAT.
The Consultant must determine whether any indirect taxes/VAT are chargeable on the proposed services and state the basis for such. If any indirect taxes/VAT are payable, the Client will have to pay indirect taxes/VAT element to the services directly to the Consultant unless otherwise agreed.

Project Description:

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the "EBRD” or the “Bank”) has extended a senior loan of up to KZT 2.5 billion (EUR 10 million equivalent) to the Pavlodar Tram Management Company (the “Client” or the “Company”), who is fully owned by the Pavlodar Oblast Akimat (the “Oblast Akimat”). The proceeds of the Loan will be used for i) procurement of up to 25 new units of modern energy efficient trams; (ii) rehabilitation of the tram infrastructure including catenary and junctions; and (iii) balance sheet restructuring (the “Project”). The loan will be split into 2 tranches. The Project also includes co-financing of up to USD 13.5 million from the Oblast Akimat and/or the Government of Kazakhstan (the “GOK”) under the Enhanced Partnership Framework Arrangements (the “EPFA”).

Currently, public transport services in Pavlodar are supplied by independent operators that are either public or private firms. In all cases the transport operator must sign a contract with the Akimat of the City (“City Akimat”) or the bodies authorised by the City Akimat. Regular public transport services are provided with two modes in Pavlodar: road-based buses and minibuses, and rail-based trams. There is one tram operator: the Company, and 9 bus operators, including one public bus company owned by the Oblast Akimat rendering services on social regional routes.

The Project will enable the Company to address the service issues and improve its public transport services by financing priority investments for the rehabilitation and modernisation of its networks. The Project will result in increased energy efficiency, a reduction in losses, and improvements in environmental standards. This will stimulate the process of commercialisation of public transport operations in general, thus supporting the sector reforms and having a significant demonstration effect in the country.
