Strengthening the resilience of the agriculture sector project: Feasibility study - business plan - ESIA/ Detailed design/cost estimate for three ALCs and Supervision of works (2022-2025)
The Project supports the establishment of three Agro-Logistic Centres (ALCs) located with one each in the Khatlon, Sughd, and RRS regions, where horticulture production is concentrated. The basic parameters for each ALC would include: a minimum 10,000 m² of area, from 3,000 to 5,000 m² of built facilities, with enough flexibility to anticipate an expansion, a handling capacity for 5,000 to 8,000 tons of fresh and processed fruits and vegetables, (cold) storage capacity, and a multi-functional sorting, grading and packing line.
The scope of works is divided into three phases, with each phase being conditional on the Client’s approval of the preceding phase. Phase 1 consists in preparing a feasibility study and schematic design. Phase 2 consists in preparing a detailed engineering design and bidding documents. Phase 3 consists in supervising the works.
