The tripartite National Technical Committee (NTC)representing the three Abay/Nile river riparian countries of Ethiopia, Sudan, and Egypt has selected a French firm that will conduct a research on Ethiopia’s iconic project, the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).
The three countries experts led by their water ministers, who held a discussion on April 8 and 9 at Elilly International Hotel in Addis Ababa, disclosed their final agreement at a press conference they held immediately after concluding the dialogue.
The technical committee stated that it will officially disclose the company’s name after it informed the winner.
A hydrology simulation model and socioeconomic impacts assessment of the project are the areas that the company will study.
Seven companies were selected to make their offer, and four of them, BRL Ingenierie and Arteria – both French based – and the Dutch companies Deltares and DHI had submitted their technical and financial proposals to undertake the study.
Sources said that BRL Ingenierie and Deltares were among the short listed companies. The source told Capital that Ethiopia and Sudan favored the French company, while Egypt insisted on a Dutch company.
Although the name of the selected company was not disclosed at the press conference, sources said that the three countries have finally agreed to award the research for BRL Ingenierie and Deltares will be involved as a sub consultant.
The multi billion dollar Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) project that is being constructed on Tikur Abay will be the biggest ever hydroelectric project on the continent. Three weeks ago, the three riparian countries have signed a historic agreement about the river and the project.
In the two-day meeting, water ministers of Ethiopia, Egypt, and Sudan, diplomats, scholars and members of the tripartite committee attended the discussion.
