The consultancy outputs included:
• Assessment and review the exiting power sources to identify the problems and to propose technical design solutions;
• Proposed remedial solutions for identified problems through different methodology to protect the shortage of power and process improvement approach and produce detail design report for specific assignment;
• Identifying the specific problems in different sites found in AAWSA and analyze how to improve;
• Identifying and quantifying specific demands for which the provision of alternative power is needed;
• Carrying out all the required engineering surveys and investigations such as topographical survey and existing condition of the proposed area etc. as applicable to the concerned project component;
• Preparation of proposal of construction of methodology including how to access and manage the power;
• Prepare the engineering design by referring different site condition of the project in sufficient detail to ensure clarity and understanding by the implementation unit and other relevant stakeholders;
• The design shall be prepared in close consultation with, and to meet the requirement of, the AAWSA and will be incorporated in to a detailed design report to be submitted for approval of the AAWAS project office;
