Advice to Contractors

In an effort to ensure the highest quality of work, BEPL will preferentially invite bids from firms that can demonstrate having recently provided EPC services on at least five projects in the past five years, each project with a value exceeding US$100 million, of which at least two are on a full turnkey EPC basis. Experience of working in Sub-Saharan Africa is also desirable. BEPL also wishes for this international experience to be complemented with utilisation of in-country expertise.

Preference will also be given to firms that are capable of delivering the full package of works under a fully wrapped turnkey contract.

BEPL will not be responsible for, or accept any cost involved in, the preparation or submission of expressions of interest and does not bind itself to accept or pre-qualify any such expression of interest.
