EBRD's Sustainable Infrastructure Group delivers around 90 projects per year, investing approximately EUR 3.5 billion annually across a diverse range of sub-sectors, including electricity, roads, urban transport, logistics, water and wastewater, facilities management, and solid waste management. Within this framework, the EBRD is now seeking to select between 4 and 6 experienced consultants to be contracted to provide services over the operational period. The eligible countries in the MENA region are Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia and Libya. The deadline for submission is 2 August 2019.

In order to support the quick mobilization and cost effective delivery of the above mentioned services, the Bank intends to sign framework contracts under three new project preparation windows, an Energy Infrastructure Window (EIW), a Municipal Infrastructure Window (MIW) and a Transport Infrastructure Window (TIW). Going forward, it is anticipated that the majority of the Bank’s project preparation assignments will be procured under these framework contracts. The number and size of assignments under each window will depend on the Bank’s project pipeline at the time, but it is expected that assignments worth approximately EUR 5 million will be contracted under each window annually.

Energy Infrastructure Window

The selected Consultants will be expected to provide support for project preparation with a focus on the following sectors:

• Electricity transmission, distribution and metering;
• Smart grid infrastructure, grid interconnection, energy management systems and energy storage;
• Gas transmission and distribution networks, gasification, underground storage, LNG terminals, floating storage and regasification units;
• District energy (district heating and cooling)
- Thermal generation including renewables, combined heat and power (CHP) and conventional plant excluding coal
- Thermal storage
- Networks and distribution
- Demand side management including metering and improved control
• Public sector power generation projects, renewables as well as conventional excluding coal, nuclear and oil-based plant;
• Energy efficiency projects, including buildings and street lighting.

From time to time the Consultants may also be required to carry out assignments related to other energy infrastructure sectors.

Municipal Environmental Infrastructure Window

The selected Consultants will be expected to provide support for project preparation with a focus on the following sectors:

• Municipal water and wastewater
• Irrigation
• Solid Waste Management
• Facility Management

The Consultants may also be required to carry out assignments related to other municipal infrastructure sub-sectors. Urban transport projects are intended to be covered by the Transport Infrastructure Window but occasionally projects contracted under the MIW may also include such components. Likewise district heating and cooling is expected to be covered under the Energy Infrastructure Window but could also feature in assignments under the MIW framework.

Transport Infrastructure Window

The selected Consultants will be expected to provide support for project preparation with a focus on the following sectors:

• Road and motorway infrastructure including bridges and tunnels;
• Urban transport including bus, tram, trolleybus and metro;
• Urban roads and regeneration including parking, traffic management and smart city infrastructure ;
• National, regional and local railroad infrastructure including tracks, stations, signalling and rolling stock;
• Maritime infrastructure including ports, shipyards, inland waterways and fleets;
• Airports and air navigation;
• Logistics and inter-modal platforms;

From time to time the Consultants may also be required to carry out assignments related to other transport infrastructure sectors.

The Consultants will typically be required to undertake the following types of assignments within the sectors specified above:

  • Early project definition, screening, scoping and strategic planning (including sector strategy, investment prioritization, and project and program-level pre-feasibility analysis.
  • Strategic environmental and social assessment, initial environmental and social examination covering project E&S categorization and scoping, climate change adaptation risk identification, biodiversity assessment and screening.
  • Project preparation and investment feasibility assessment (including feasibility studies, due diligence, technical assessment and development of long term investment plan and priority investment program, economic analysis, investment appraisal and risk analysis, financial analysis and modelling).
  • Environmental and social assessment, gender impact assessment and economic inclusion analysis, Green Economy Transition (“GET”) assessment and climate resilience assessment.
  • Procurement support and implementation strategy.
