Position: Hydraulics Specialist / Deputy Team Leader /Chief Design Engineer
General Qualification: Master’s degree in hydraulic engineering with Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from recognized university.
Project Related Experience: 15 years of national work experience in hydraulic structures design of large dams’ projects and Irrigation infrastructure development. The applicant shall have worked as a Deputy Team Leader on dam projects for a period of 5 years.
Overseas/Country Experience: 3 years of work experience on similar dam Projects in Asia.
The Government of Pakistan requested a project readiness financing (PRF) from ADB to prepare the Naulong Integrated Water Resources Development Project (the ensuing investment project). The ensuing investment project comprises a 57-meter-high zoned earthfilled main dam, a 54-meter-high auxiliary dam with similar zoned configuration, an orifice gated spillway structure, a fuse plug embankment, a tunnel, two powerhouses, and an irrigation scheme with 2 main canals. Ninety Million cubic meters (MCM)of water will be provided to a new command area of 10,927 ha on the right side of the river and 80 MCM for irrigating 8,094 ha on the left side including availability of water for drinking purpose of the local population.
The key objectives of the assignment is to (a) review the overall agriculture development and irrigation management plan; (b) climate change impact evaluation and the hydrology review which could have impact on the reservoir and spillway sizing and changes of the model of command area development approaches; and (c) review and update the existing DED. The DED update shall be based on (a) all the technical aspects using international best practices for the design of high dams and hydropower plants including respective electromechanical equipment and power evacuation substation and transmission lines following the International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD) guidelines; (b) design of new, upgraded, and remodeled irrigation system with improved technologies and practices in command area development; and (c) design of all other Project allied facilities. The survey and investigation data shall meet the DED requirements to calculate all the quantities with maximum accuracy as per site conditions to prepare the Bill of Quantities for the bidding documents for works contracts. FIDIC’s red book or similar contract as appropriate shall be used. ADB standard bid document for supply of goods and goods/equipment may be used. The decision for type of contract to be used shall be decided based on the procurement strategy that shall be developed as part of scope of PRF. The Updated DED shall cover sufficient details required for the preparation of drawings and technical specifications to prepare comprehensive bidding documents. In addition, the assignment will facilitate (i) preparation of strategic procurement planning to develop a procurement plan for the ensuing Project; (ii) Project approval; (iii) enhance procurement readiness; (iv) carrying out Procurement process for Project Works (v) compliances with environmental and social safeguards; and (vi) ensure Project remains technically, economically, financially, institutionally relevant, viable and sustainable after the updated DED. Experience and lessons learned from implementation of other Projects of WAPDA will be drawn and incorporated in the detailed design
