Pakistan’s NTDC invites bids for extension works at 220 kV grid stations [free access]

June 23, 2020

Pakistan’s state-owned high voltage network developer, National Transmission and Despatch Company Limited (NTDC), has invited international competitive bids for the design, supply and installation of extension works at the 220 kV Sibi and Loralai grid stations (GSs). The contract is part of the World Bank-funded National Transmission Modernization Project-I (NTMP-I). 


The scope of work under the contract includes the extension of a 160 MVA, 220/132 kV three-phase autotransformer at the Sibi GS and extension of a 250 MVA, 220/132 kV three-phase autotransformer at the Loralai GS.


The USD563.33 million NTMP-I project will modernise the national transmission system to enable new power generation to reach consumers by upgrading, expanding and rehabilitating select 500 kV and 220 kV substations and transmission lines. This will then help improve supply reliability and lower losses in the transmission network.


The project will also modernise the information and communication technology infrastructure and strengthen the financial and accounting systems of NTDC, using information technology. This will result in more efficient operation and business decision-making processes, higher productivity, and upgraded staff skills.


The duration of the contract is 18 months from the date of award. The last date for submission of bids is August 19, 2020.
