Bulgarian company Centralna Energoremontna Baza EAD (CERB) announced that it has embarked on a project for overhauling Albania’s biggest hydropower plant – the Koman, portal said. The project is worth BGN 1 million (EUR 510,000) and was commissioned by the Albanian state-owned electricity company KESH. CERB is participating as contractor of Austria’s Andritz Hydro, thus carrying out an overhaul of a total of three transformers, the report said. This includes replacing the cooling system of the transformers, processing of transformer oil, paintjob and cleaning. The transformers have not been subjected to repairs since they were produced in 1984. CERB said that the overhaul would not only spare to KESH the EUR 3 million it would have paid for replacing the transformers, but also decrease greatly the risk of failure which occurs with the lack of proper maintenance.
