Hydropower plant operator Dravske elektrarne Maribor d. o. o. (DEM) published an invitation for bids to supply a transformer and other equipment for rehabilitation of the 2.26 MW Melje hydroelectric project on Slovenia’s Drava river, HydroWorld portal said. Bids are due June 1.

DEM operates eight hydropower projects on the Drava as well as three thermal and four photovoltaic power plants in Slovenia. It took bids in 2008 for the supply of pump-turbines and motor-generators for the 400 MW Kozjak pumped-storage project.

Last year, Slovenia hydro utility Savske elektrarne Ljubljana d. o. o. took bids to rehabilitate the 21 MW Moste hydroelectric project on the Sava river.

DEM now seeks bids for five lots for the two-unit Melje, a minimum flow plant built at Melje dam near the 126 MW Zlatoličje hydro project. Work is to include the supply of electrical equipment and materials, medium-voltage transformer and hydraulic controller and cooling system, rehabilitation of hydro-mechanical equipment and corrosion protection, and construction work.

The various lots are expected to require from 45 days to five months to complete. Bid documents may be obtained from DEM’s website.
