Announcement for EOI Srydarya IFC CCGT 1250-1500MW

The government of Uzbekistan has initiated a broad energy sector reform plan in 2019 that envisages unbundling of vertically integrated system, tariff reform and attracting private sector investment in power generation.

As part of the reforms the Government has decided to develop a ~1,250-1,500 MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power plant (the “Plant”) through a Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) model, whereby a private partner will be selected through a competitive tender to enter into a long-term agreement with the government to finance, design, build, operate, maintain and transfer the Plant (the “Transaction”).

To assist with the structuring of the Transaction and implementing the competitive tender process the Government of Uzbekistan has appointed the International Financial Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, as its lead transaction advisor.

Pursuant to Uzbekistan PPP Law the tender will be conducted in two stages. Prequalification stage starts with the invitation to express interest in the Project. Only those investors who expressed interest in the Project will be invited to submit prequalification applications, on their own or by forming consortia (to be determined by the potential investor at the time of prequalification application). At the second stage prequalified prospective bidders will be invited to assess the Project, comment on the Project documentation, and finally submit binding technical and financial proposals.
