The project is a run-of-river type development on the Kelani River in the Central and Sabaragamuwa provinces. The main work sites are situated 65km north east of Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo.

The prospective contractor’s scope of work for the scheme will include, but not be limited to, all civil, mechanical and electrical works associated with the dams, hydraulic structures, tunnels, power house, switchyard and transmission line, as well as access road improvements and new constructions.

The prospective bidders are expected to arrange credit facilities with reputed financiers/lending institutions/prime banks to cover the full cost (excluding taxes, duties payable in Sri Lanka) of the project. On successful selection of a bidder, the Government of Sri Lanka will enter in to a loan agreement with the proposed financier/lending institution/prime bank. The bidding document – which should be purchased by 22 December – includes a format for the mandatory financial proposal.

The financial proposals to be submitted by the bidders should contain a letter of commitment from the financier.
