Business Opportunities

Consulting Services Part 1 of the PPTA will use individual consultants (3 international for 4.5 person-months, and 2 national for 16.0 person-months). This approach is cost and time efficient to allow quick mobilization of the consultants to (i) conduct the technical and economic study on wind and other renewable energy-based district heating, (ii) improve the project design, and (iii) conduct environmental and social safeguards due diligence. The tasks under part 2 will be undertaken by a consulting firm (1 international for 2.0 person-months and 4 national for 9.0 person-months) using quality- and cost-based selection method (with a quality-cost ratio of 90:10) due to important technical aspects associated with hybrid wind district heating system.
