Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The power sector in the Kyrgyz Republic has aging assets, is subject to high commercial losses, generates below-cost tariffs, and generally performs poorly. The majority of assets is over 30 years old and is approaching the end of their economic lives. Given the increased demand for power in the Kyrgyz Republic, rehabilitation, replacement and augmentation of power sector assets are critical for energy security in the country.
Impact Increased reliability of national and regional power systems
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Operational performance of the Kyrgyz Republic power sector improved

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The main environmental impacts of the project are (i) occupational health and safety at the project site; (ii) handling of used oil and grease waste; (iii) disposal of scrap metal and other solid waste; (iv) civil works for dam refurbishment; (v) transportation of construction materials and heavy equipment to the project site; and (vi) removal of generated waste from the project site. The EMP specifies adequate mitigation measures and monitoring plans to cover these impacts. Released oils and scrap metals will be kept safe at the on-site storage area, which will be improved with financing under the phase 1 project for usage throughout the whole Toktogul rehabilitation program. EPP is responsible for ensuring that licensed companies, under the monitoring and supervision of the PMC and PIU, recycle and dispose oils and scrapmetals.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is classified category C for both involuntary resettlement and indigenous peoples under ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement. A due diligence report was prepared to support the C categorization. All civil works will be carried out within the confines of the existing Toktogul HPP, so no land acquisition or livelihood impacts will occur. A transport management plan will be developed by the turnkey contractor for the delivery of turbines and other oversized materials and equipment. EPP will coordinate the plan with the National Traffic Police and local governments.
Indigenous Peoples The project is not expected to affect indigenous peoples as defined under ADB's safeguard requirements on indigenous peoples.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Rehabilitation of the Toktogul hydropower plant will require consultation with the people/population residing near the project site to be carried out by the due diligence consultant.
During Project Implementation Consultation with the Ministry of Energy and Industry, Electric Power Plants, and local residents will be held 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.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultants will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). Quality- and cost-based selection method (QCBS) method will be the used for recruiting consulting firms with a standard quality cost ratio of 90:10 due to the complex nature of the rehabilitation work and technology adopted in the project, thus the importance of quality. External auditing and public information program consultants will be selected using consultants' qualifications selection (CQS). PIU support consultant will be recruited using individual consultants selection (ICS).
Procurement

Procurement for the rehabilitation of Toktogul Powerhouse (Units 1 and 3) is combined with the Phase 2 project. All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time).

International competitive bidding (ICB) procedures for the procurement of goods and works will be applied. ADB's standard bidding documents for (i) Plant: Design, Supply and Installation and (ii) Large Works will be used. Master bidding documents (MBDs) will be prepared before any contract specific procurement is advertised.
