A request for proposals will be launched by April and the final
developer will be appointed by September, the statement said.
“The project will be built on a
Build-Operate-Transfer financing model and will not put any fiscal strain on
the governments of Zambia and Zimbabwe as no sovereign
guarantees will be required,” it said.
Those shortlisted are a consortium of General Electric and Power Construction Corporation of China, Salini Impregilo of Italy and a joint venture of Chinese firms Three Gorges Corporation, China International and Water Electric Corporation and China Gezhouba Group Company. http://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/zambia-zimbabwe-shortlist-foreign-firms-to-build-hydro-plant-2019-02-21
