Montenegro’s state power utility Elektroprivreda Crne Gore (EPCG) has invited bids for EUR 3.36 million worth of overhaul of six out of seven generators at the Perućica hydropower plant (HPP), as part of a project to ensure reliable electricity production at the HPP Perućica over the next 20 to 30 years.

A contractor to overhaul HPP Perućica’s generators G1, G2, G3, G5, G6, and G7 is expected to be selected by the end of the year, Vikend Novine was told at EPCG’s corporate communications department.

The planned works are to be carried out over three years, with two generators to be overhauled each year, according to the invitation of bids available on EPCG’s website.

Overhaul to boost HPP Perućica’s reliability 

After the planned overhaul of equipment and facilities, HPP Perućica will be one the most reliable electricity producers in Montenegro over the next 20 to 30 years, the paper was told at EPCG.
