Six of the eight bidders selected by the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) Technical Evaluation Committee (TEC) have qualified for the Financial Biddings round which is to be opened on Thursday.
SCAPC ignored the TEC recommendations and selected only Samsung JV of Korea and disqualified five bidders.
The Vice President of this Korean company had been sentenced to prison last year due to the billions of rupees pledged to approve the projects.
SCAPC was questioned whether electrical engineers or mechanical engineers pin pointed such details.
“Civil servants should not try to mimic engineers,” an official said adding none of the engineers’ input was taken into consideration.
