REQUEST FOR INFORMATION Country: Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Entity: Da Afghanistan Breshan Sherkat (DABS) Project Title: Design Supply, Installation, Testing and Commissioning of Direct Tapping HV )220/110kV, AC) /LV through single phase step down transformers, related protection and control equipment with required distribution Network up to 1km Background:- Most of the existing transmission lines do pass through villages which have no access to electricity or far away from DABS distribution networks. Da Afghanistan Breshana Sherkat is therefore planning to electrify the villages located under/nearby the existing 220 kV and 110 kV transmission lines in rural areas of Afghanistan. 1. This RFI is meant to seek ideas on availability of such technology to Enable DABS for electrifying targeted rural areas of Afghanistan , the requirement is HV to LV single phase transformers with capacities (depending on design) ranging from 50 - 200 kVA or above based on available technology with corresponding associated equipment and distribution network up to 1km to the consumers. The step down transformers shall have the ability to step down the 220 kV or 110 kV to 0.4kV. 2. Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat is looking for the experienced EPC contractors to carry out the assignment for the targeted existing 220 kV and 110 kV transmission lines in Afghanistan( 5 points with 220/0,k4kV tapping and 5 points with 110/0,4kV tapping ) in rural areas where DABS don’t have its own power grid or the existing households are far away from distribution network and in order to give them the feeling of ownership of existing HV transmission lines crossing their lands and offer us the preferred technology and the Contractor will be required to provide this service to internationally recognized standards and preferred technology. 3. Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) now invites eligible EPC firms (“Contractors”) to send their information about the technology needed and their experience and capabilities as well as similar implemented projects if any to the below address through emails . For further information on the scope of the Project are available by sending emails to the following officials : Eng.
