(EcoFinances) – After the terrible fire that caused serious damage to several of its facilities and now requires the deployment of over 250 billion FCFA for reconstruction work, while causing the State to lose just over 84 billion FCFA in taxes in 2019, the National Refining Company (Sonara) plans to equip itself with a Fire School. At least, that’s what the call for tenders to carry out detailed design studies prior to the construction of a Fire School at Sonara, published by the company on September 06, suggests.
Valued at 61.7 million FCFA, all taxes included, this call for tenders is for « the selection of a project management company to carry out the preliminary detailed design (ADP), including all trades, for the development of the training areas of the future fire school and the ancillary installations required for its smooth operation« .
The list is not exhaustive, but based on the preliminary study and information gathered in situ (on site), the breakdown by work package includes: the general layout and civil engineering package; the piping package; the electrical and instrumentation package; the mechanical and boiler-making package; the HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) and life cycle; and support for contract award operations.
Financed by Sonara’s investment budget, the services covered by this call for tenders are scheduled to last four (04) months. Companies interested in this business opportunity must submit their bids to Sonara’s Procurement Department by September 27 at the latest.
