South Sudan: Consultancy – Hydraullic Modelling

 Agrimensura, Finanzas, FULL TIME, Hoteles, Investigacion de Mercado  Comments Off on South Sudan: Consultancy – Hydraullic Modelling
Oct 222019
 

Organization: Concern Worldwide
Country: South Sudan
Closing date: 04 Nov 2019

  1. Background

    About 1.86 million people have been internally displaced across South Sudan, including over 215,000 seeking shelter in the Protection of Civilians Sites of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS). Recent[1] head count reports shared by International Organization for Migration (IOM) camp management shows over 103,234[2] IDPs reside in the UN peacekeeping base in Bentiu, Unity State.

    Concern began working in Unity State in January 2014 in response to the 2013 political crisis thanks to support from donors such as USAID, UNICEF, and DFATD/GAC. As people fled to Bentiu PoC, Concern’s team established WASH, shelter/NFI and nutrition activities in the PoC, expanding these more recently to locations in wider Unity as part of the Beyond Bentiu Response.

    In Rubkona County, Concern operates a water supply network serving communal water points, water kiosks, individual tap stands and commercial business. Private people using donkey carts and water tankers also access water from the water treatment plant and an emergency SWAT system serving Rubkona town. The two towns have in the recent past seen an influx in the number of people settling in these locations due to the signed agreement for peace in South Sudan

    Concern has secured funding from OFDA for improving and extending a pipeline supply network for Rubkona and Bentiu water supply systems. Concern therefore seeks a competent Waster system hydraulic modelling specialist to conduct a hydraulic modelling for Bentiu and Rubkona water supply systems in Northern Liech State in South Sudan.

  2. Purpose of the Consultancy

    The objective of the assignment is to develop the water system hydraulic model for the water supply system in Bentiu and Rubkona networks to determine the existing system bottlenecks and propose measures to optimize the system’s efficiency and ensure that it meets the increased population water requirements; to conduct the technical review of the system with regard to setting performance/impact indicators and document the lessons learnt; and to develop a BoQ and profile for 8 km proposed extension pipeline .

  1. Objectives and Specific Tasks to be undertaken by the Consultant(s)

    The main objective of the hydraulic modelling is to conduct the survey within Rubkona County (Bentiu and Rubkona towns) in Nothern Liech state for extension of pipeline networks in the two urban centres. As outlined below is Concerns preferred technical approach to achieve the objective

    The scope of the consultancy assignment shall include but not limited to the following;

  • Determine the water demand for Rubkona and Bentiu population and the SPHERE water consumption standards. Determine the distribution demand over the entire water system.

  • Survey and Map the current water supply and distribution system (show all valves, connections etc) including pressure measurements, leak detection and establish the roughness of the existing system (Using GIS).

  • Undertake hydraulic modelling of the existing system with the present supply/demand and identify the existing system bottlenecks using WaterGEMs.

  • Discuss with Concern and State Ministry of Physical infrastructure agencies within Rubkona to determine the future state population and demands.

  • Propose measures for improvement of the existing water system to provide adequate water and service standards to the fluctuating IDP population including expected future increase.

  • Propose on how the current system can be interconnected /looped to ensure continuity of services in the events of breakdowns using the most cost-effective method.

  • Provide preliminary cost estimates for the improvement works including suitable implementation plan, schedule and contracting.

  • Present the modelling to the Client and other stakeholders including training of the Client staff on the developed model.

  • To analyse the system performance against set indicators and targets (both outputs and beneficiaries).

  • Identify the strengths and challenges and assess the overall effects (outcomes) and impacts of the intervention (intended and unintended, short-term and long-term).

  • The technical review shall also include a discussion around relevance[3], effectiveness[4] and efficiency[5] of the system.

Perform the following analysis;

  • Water quality analysis.

  • Scenario management (What if’s situations, different demand alternatives, pressure dependent, fire flow).
