Contractors currently registered with EEC will not receive automatic qualification into the database but are expected to respond to this invite and evaluated. Those that qualify at evaluation will be shortlisted and registered, with new contracts entered into with them.

Some of the works that contractors will be expected to carry out include; service installation, LV  and HV construction, transformer installation, LV and HV maintenance, and underground cabling and switchgear installation.

The EEC amongst other processes has the duty to construct electricity lines and maintain them to ensure a sustainable and reliable supply of electricity to the Kingdom of Eswatini. In its existence, the EEC is regulated by the Eswatini Energy Regulatory Authority (ESERA) and is certified for the following systems; ISO9001:2015, OHSAS18001:2007 and ISO14001:2015.

Whilst conducting the works according to line construction and maintenance standards, the contractors will also be guided on the requirements of the regulator and those of the above-mentioned systems so as ensures the organization complies at all times. Therefore, the company seeks to engage reputable and suitably qualified electrical contractors to provide the services of line construction and line maintenance.
