    C. Brief TOR1 Background

    Water resources are the major natural resources of Nepal. It has more than 6000 rivers andrivulets belonging to three main drainage basins: Koshi, Gandaki and Karnali. Most of therivers are perennial as they are originated in high Himalayas and are nourished by snow andglaciers. Water resources of Nepal have been regarded as nature's bountiful gift to the country.Hydropower is one of the major potential water resources which can boost economy of thecountry. The main reason for hydropower projects being the most attractive is due toenvironment friendly, reliable, safe and cheap source of energy. It has 83,000 MW theoreticalpotential among which42,000 MW is economically viable potential. At present, only about2%of the techno-economically viable potential has been harnessed.

    It has been realized that hydropower can play vital role in Nepalese economy, both byproviding cost efficient &environment friendly power supply to improve energy services andalso by contributing to GDP growth by exporting power. In addition, the harnessing of un-tapped water resources on large scale could provide significant contribution to the povertyreduction and employment generation. It could be considered as the major economicbackbones of the country.

    The government of Nepal intends to develop these hydropower potential in economical,efficient and sustainable manner to meet the growing power demand in the country as well asto export. In line with the Hydropower Development Policy, 2001 and Water ResourcesStrategy, 2002, the government of Nepal has emphasized to increase the private sectorinvolvement in the hydropower development for large, medium and small hydropowerprojects. Government of Nepal has provided various incentives to private sector fordevelopment of hydropower sector. In order to promote private sector, Nepal ElectricityAuthority (NEA) has fixed the energy rates for small hydropower projects upto 25 MWcapacity initiated by Independent Power Producers (IPPs). Similarly, domestic commercialbanks are also interested to invest in hydropower projects as priority sector investment.

    Despite of various efforts of government to promote private sector, the private sector is notable to flourish as envisaged. Potential mega-projects have failed to take shape in Nepalprimarily due to the lack of adequate funds and the basic infra-structural facilities; in view ofwhich, the development of medium scale and small hydropower projects are given highpriority. Larger projects require huge amount of investment and time. The significantadvantages of the small to medium hydropower plants are lower capital investment andproximity to the regional load centres, as well as use of local technology and shorterconstruction period. Hence, at present the GON has initiated its plan to make the bankablehydropower projects of small and medium size for its development in future using various

  • 7

    modalities of the development.

    In this context Budhi Ganga Hydropower Project(BGHP),Department of ElectricityDevelopment (DoED) intends to conduct Detailed Engineering Design and EnvironmentalStudy of small and medium hydropower projects using government fund. In this regard, TheBudhi Ganga Hydropower intends to procure services of domestic consulting firm to conductdetailed engineering design and IEE study of Jugada Budhi Ganga Hydropower Project alongwith the feasibility study for regional balance of country based on hydropower development.

    2 Objective of the complete study

    The main objective of the consulting service is to conduct feasibility study, detailedengineering design & Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) study of the proposedhydropower project and prepare study report covering technical, financial, socio-economic,institutional, environmental and any other relevant aspects of project development includingexamine technical, financial, economic and environmental viability of the project. In order tomeet targeted objective, the consultant shall carryout necessary field survey and investigationexpect drilling works along with technical via financial viability for different projectalternatives at feasibility level. After that, the Client will provide the consultant an approval togo forward with the best project option among the project alternatives obtained fromfeasibility level for detailed engineering design that will include project optimization designof project & its components, prepare drawing and cost estimate, conduct IEE and preparereport accordingly. The IEE study should constitute an integral part of the Detailed DesignStudy in conformity with the environmental legislation of Nepal.

    Hence this study is divided in to two components which are:(i) Feasibility Study(ii) Detailed Engineering Design(iii)Initial Environmental Examination (IEE)

    For any other matters not covered in the TOR, the consultant should refer the Guidelines forStudy of Hydropower Projects (2018), various manuals prepared by DoED and internationallyaccepted standard and guidelines. The IEE study shall be carried out in accordance with therequirements of the Environmental Protection Act, 1997 and Environmental Protection Rule1997 and its amendments. The IEE study shall be carried out by the environmental study teamin conjunction with the team of experts of detailed engineering design.

    In the backdrop mentioned above, BGHP is desirous to procure the services of domesticreputed engineering consulting firms ("Consultant") having competent team of specialists toperform relevant field survey & investigations at feasibility level with different projectoptions, detailed engineering design, IEE study and prepare project report. This scope of workmentioned here under outlines the services of the consultant which has to be performed duringstudy period. However, the list of tasks and activities provided therein may not be a completeand comprehensive description of the consultant's duties. It is expected that the consultant
