The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has found contractors willing to complete the unfinished portion of the Dhalkebar substation project in a third attempt.
Construction of the 220 kV substation came to a stop after NEA terminated the contract with the Chinese contractor working on it based on non-performance, reports Kathmandu Post.
On December 12, the state-owned power utility published a notice inviting interested bidders to submit proposals to complete the stalled project. This was the third tender notice issued by NEA.
The power utility has opened the technical proposals of the two bidders, Telmark and ABB Engineering, both Indian companies.
NEA will now review the financial proposals of the technically qualified companies, select the lowest bidder and send its name to the World Bank, which is financing the project.
