MOZAMBIQUE – MALAWI TRANSMISSION INTERCONNECTION PROJECT

 

Project ID: P144551 (01/M-M/2017)

Terms of Reference

(ToR)

for

Consulting Services for Procurement of Contractors (Tender Agent)

for

Mozambique-Malawi Transmission

Interconnection

 

  1. 1. INTRODUCTION

 

 

On April 3, 2013, the Governments of Malawi and Mozambique signed a Power Interconnection

Agreement that includes two phases: (i) Phase 1- Construction of the Mozambique-Malawi EHV Transmission Line from the Matambo substation in Tete, Mozambique, to the Phombeya substation in Balaka, Malawi; and (ii) Phase 2 – Construction of a second Transmission line from Balaka to Nacala, Mozambique. Phase 1 includes also (i) extension/upgrade of the Matambo substation on the Mozambican side from 220 kV to 400 kV; and (ii) extension of the 400 kV Phombeya substation on the Malawian side.

 

The proposed Mozambique-Malawi Transmission Line Project will interconnect the Malawi and the Mozambique electricity grids, thereby interconnecting Malawi with the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) network.

 

These Terms of Reference refer to the process of selecting a consultant to play the role of a Tender Agent[1] with the responsibility to support the Client with the procurement of Contractors for the construction of an EHV Transmission Interconnection Line between Mozambique and Malawi and extension/upgrade of the substations under the Project. In this regards, it has mutually been agreed that EDM shall fulfill the role of the client for contractual purposes, while both EDM and ESCOM would be beneficiaries under the resulting Tender Agent contract.

 

Under the context of the project, the two countries have formally established a Project Steering Committee and have already recruited one Feasibility Study (FS) International Consulting Firm which is currently carrying out an update on technical-economic feasibility study for the Mozambique-Malawi Transmission Line prepared in 2005. Under the said assignment which has been ongoing since June 2016 and with completion expected for September 2017, the FS Consultant is not only carrying out an update to the previous Feasibility Study but is also preparing the Conceptual Engineering Design.

 

The FS Consultant shall also prepare the Tender Documents for International Competitive Bidding under the Project. The procurement shall be carried out in accordance with the World Bank’s “Procurement Regulations for IPF Borrowers” (Procurement Regulations) dated July 2016 under the “New Procurement Framework (NPF).

 

In parallel to the technical-economic study, separate studies under different consultancy services contracts covering Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF), and Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) are also being conducted by another   ESIA International Consultant who is responsible for generating the ESMP that will be included by the FS Consultant in the Tender Documents.

 

The Tender Documents shall be prepared covering scope of works for the transmission line section on the Mozambican side as one lot and then the transmission line section combined with the substation section on the Malawian side as another lot. The second Tender Documents shall be prepared covering the substation section of the Mozambican side as only one lot. Procurement for the case of the first Tender Documents is to be carried out for  two responsibility contracts, one related to Mozambican scope and the other related to the Malawian scope, using World Bank Standard Procurement Documents for Plant Design, Supply, and Installation (Request for Bids) as well as the   Procurement Regulations.

 

Therefore, the Tender Agent shall use the Tender Documents that will already have been prepared by the FS Consultant which will also have been approved by the Client and the project financiers. The Tender Agent shall undertake the assignment comprising of tender management support during the bidding process for the Plant Design, Supply and Installation to hire contractors for the construction of the EHV Transmission Line as well as their related terminal substations in Mozambique and Malawi.

 

 

 

  1. 2. PROJECT BACKGROUND

Southern Africa exhibits substantial variations in energy resource endowments, degrees of industrial development, levels and patterns of power consumption, and power costs. These differences present opportunities for a coordinated development of the regional power sector to generate savings through aggregation of loads with different load profiles and efficient use of energy resources by exploiting large-scale power generation schemes that are viable on the basis of large, multi-country markets; and manage the risks of climate-related power shortages in hydro-dependent countries.

 

The Southern Africa Region as a whole is experiencing generation capacity shortage. At least 1,000MW of additional capacity will be required each year to meet demand growth. Much of the new demand could be met through large, regional generation projects. Regional trade in electricity is expected to increase, highlighting the need to address transmission-related constraints.

 

In August 1995, Southern African Development Community (SADC) member countries created the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) by concluding an Intergovernmental Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the view to promoting co-operation in the Energy Sector. The utilities of 12 Southern African countries were the original members of the SAPP. The main grid systems of Botswana, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe form the existing regional network. Angola, Malawi, and Tanzania are not yet connected. In February 2006, membership in the SAPP was expanded to include private generation and transmission companies.

 

One of the immediate challenges is the need to strengthen and expand the regional transmission infrastructure as demand in the region grows and several existing interconnections are overloaded or in need of rehabilitation. Connection to the regional grid of non-connected SAPP member power systems is a priority in terms of SAPP planning. In the 2013 SAPP Annual Report, the Mozambique-Malawi Transmission Interconnection is explicitly noted as a high priority for the regional Pool.

3. BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON THE POWER SECTOR AND GRID

Malawi context

The existing Malawian high voltage power system extends from the generation center along the Shire River in the south up to the northern districts near the border to Tanzania over a length of about 800 km. The transmission voltage levels currently used in Malawi are 132 kV and 66 kV.

 

Within the Infrastructure Development Project (IDP) component of the Millennium Challenge Corporation Malawi Compact (MCC Malawi Compact), the introduction of the 400 kV level for the North-South backbone is considered for the Malawi power system with an approx. 170 km long 400 kV transmission line from Phombeya to Nkhoma Substation currently under implementation. Initial works of the 400/132 kV Phombeya Substation is also currently under construction with an expected in service date of the last term of 2017. Regarding the Mozambique - Malawi Transmission Line Interconnector Project, it is noted that the voltage level of 220 kV does currently not exist in Malawi.

 

Mozambique context

 

The current high voltage (HV) power system in the northern part of Mozambique consists mainly of 220 kV and 110 kV grids with a 400 kV interconnection to Zimbabwe and a HVDC link between Cahora Bassa and South Africa. An extensive development of the HV power system has been established as part of the overall extension of the South African power system. In Mozambique, the so called STE Backbone Project includes e.g. a 400 kV north-south backbone power system and various developments in the northern regions.

 

Regarding the Mozambique - Malawi Transmission Line Interconnector Project, it is noted that Matambo Substation in the Tete region is operated at 220 kV.

 

 

4 THE PROPOSED ASSIGNMENT

The proposed assignment includes support during procurement of contractors for EHV Transmission Line construction which will include its related terminal substations based on the engineering design and bidding documents prepared by the FS Consultant with inputs from the ESIA Consultant who are carrying out safeguard studies for the project, which will have already been approved by the client and the project funders. The ongoing two studies and the current assignment being procured are financed by the World Bank administered Norwegian Trust Fund.

In accordance with Conceptual Design Report prepared by the FS Consultant conducting a new feasibility study for which the objective is to develop and evaluate various design options and to assess the overall feasibility of the project considering one preferred design option, it has been recommended to construct one 220km, 400kV transmission line including an extension and upgrade of the Matambo substation, in Mozambique from 220kV to 400kV as well as an extension of the existing 400kV substation at Phombeya, in Malawi.

 

It is therefore expected that the Tender Agent will assist to manage the bidding process for the design, supply and installation as approved by EDM and ESCOM, as well as by the project financiers comprising of the following four project components/packages:

 

  1. 400kV Transmission line Package for about 140 km of length on the Mozambican side;
