Brief Description of the assignment:
In preparing the SREP Liberia investment plan, few investment projects will be identified by the Government of Liberia, with the support of MDBs (WB and AFDB) and stakeholders in the sector. One of these projects is a rural electrification program based on mini/micro hydropower projects (each hydropower plant should generate less than 10MW). To better circumscribe the hydro projects and anticipate their preparation, the African Development Bank intends to conduct studies to identify most economically viable sites and undertake pre-feasibility studies on the selected sites. More specifically, the expert will be expected to (i) identify mini/micro hydro power plants sites, (ii) propose the most economically viable sites based on the load centers; and iii) prepare terms of reference for detailed design and bidding studies relating to hydroelectricity production and transportation methods.

Period of assignment: 40 days
Expected start date of the assignment: Mid/End May 2013
