Description

The major outputs and activities are conducting project technical, economic, financial, governance, resettlement and environmental, and other due diligence.

The TA will support the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), the implementing agency, in preparing a feasibility study, preliminary engineering design, and conducting due diligence. As part of advance contracting, PPTA consultants will assist in preparing procurement packages and relevant bidding documents for the proposed CEB wind power generation, and competitive bidding documents for private sector participation in the project. The PPTA consultants will also prepare a road map and options for private sector involvement in further developing renewable energy sources in the country.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The sector development framework of the Government of Sri Lanka envisions sustainable development of energy resources, enabling access to and use of low cost energy services by the entire population, and reliable delivery of such services at a competitive price. To increase access to electricity and achieve the goal of meeting the growing demand for electricity at sufficiently low cost and acceptable reliability to widen access to growth opportunities and attain sustainability and energy security in the long term, the government plans to increase supply capacity of the system by raising the share of renewable energy sources, particularly wind power generation in Sri Lanka's energy mix. To address investment needs in support of these plans, a project preparatory technical assistance (TA) is needed to prepare a relevant investment project for consideration by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
