Timor Leste Power Sector Advisory on Options for Interim Generation Contract

Organization: DH Infrastructure


Current operations and maintenance (O&M) contracts for Timor-Leste’s major diesel power plants (Hera, Betano, and Comoro); and O&M arrangements for the operation of the country’s transmission and dispatch system are coming to an end. DHInfrastructure was asked to review the current contractual arrangements and the options being contemplated by key counterpart stakeholders, and advise on most advantageous commercial options as a basis for conclusion of new interim O&M contracts with either (1) the incumbent O&M operators, or (2) suitably qualified alternative O&M operators.
