During Project Design Rehabilitation of the Toktogul HPP will require public consultation for those residing near the project site to be carried out by the PPTA consultants in accordance with ADB's Social Safeguard Policy to factor in all land acquisition, resettlement and environmental considerations into projects design.
During Project Implementation

Consultation with the Ministry of Energy and Industry, OJSC EPP, and local residents will continue in determining the possible technical, financial, social and environmental implications of replacing two turbine-generator units and associated auxiliary systems in Toktogul hydroelectric power plant (HPP).

Roadshows will be conducted to allow ADB, EDB and EPP to better understand what are appropriate, realistic, and cost-efficient procurement package in terms of technology, timing and financing for the required Toktogul HEPP rehabilitation works. Invitations were sent to about 20 potential suppliers (list developed by gathering information from PPTA consultants, EDB and EPP) inviting their representatives to a technical discussions and site visits to Toktogul HEPP.

On behalf of EPP, ADB organized a project roadshow on 28 September to 1 October 2015 in Kyrgyz Republic to develop better understanding of the technical merits of the proposed design and best practice approach to this rehabilitation. Depending on the project need, similar roadshows may also be held in Europe and Asia in the future.

As agreed between ADB, EDB, MOF, EPP and the Ministry of Economy (MOEI's successor), all four turbines will be procured from the same engineering contractor. Bidding documents for this procurement is expected to be issued by June 2016, while site visit in October 2016 will be facilitated to potential contractors for better understanding of required rehabilitation for Toktogul 2. Contract award is expected by December 2016.

Consulting Services

Single-source selection method is used in recruiting Fichtner Gmbh & Co. KG of Germany (Fichtner) for consulting services with a total of 10 positions comprising of international (17 person-months) and national (18 persons-months) experts. As the consultant for Phase 1 PPTA and Project Implementation Consultant for Loan 2869-KGZ (Power Sector Rehabilitation Project), single-source selection is considered as the most appropriate approach for this assignment based on the following: (i) PPTA for Phase 1 included an assessment of future phases of the overall program. PPTA for Phases 2 is a natural continuation of Phase 1 PPTA work already carried out by Fichtner; (ii) Fichtner is currently working as Phase 1 project implementation consultant wherein scheduling and scoping of Phases 2 and 3 need to be coordinated with Phase 1 work to ensure no overlap of contractors working on site and no scope under/overlap, on which a single consultant should prepare the overall program; and (iii) the government has requested that the Project be expedited and that advance contracting is undertaken.

The Consultant was mobilized in January 2014. An Inception Report was submitted in March 2014. Draft Technical Report was submitted in mid-September 2014. With the completion of due diligence reports for the ensuing ADB financing (Loan 3212/Grant 0419-KGZ), a Technical Report was submitted in mid-March 2015 and Final Report in August 2015.
