Power utility Elektroprivreda Crne Gore (EPCG) has issued a public invitation of tenders to produce a preliminary design plan for ecological reconstruction of coal-fired power plant Pljevlja. The deadline for submission is February 1, and the estimated value of the deal is EUR 900,000. The best bidder will have seven months to do the job.

Just before the end of last year, the Government of Montenegro decided to carry out ecological reconstruction of thermal power plant (TPP) Pljevlja by 2021, as part of measures introduced under the Government’s decision to terminate cooperation with the Czech Republic’s Skoda Praha on the construction of Pljevlja’s second unit.

For years now, the plant’s emissions haven’t complied with the limit values for nitrogen and sulfur oxides, the criteria for the quality of wastewater discharged into rivers and the limit values for solid particles that will apply in the future.

The tendering documentation recalled that EPCG had submitted a request for the exemption mechanism in accordance with the decision of the Ministerial Council of the Energy Community on the implementation of the Large Combustion Plants Directive.

The Energy Community granted exemption and allowed the TPP to operate a total of 20,000 hours in the 2018-2024 period, which will reduce emissions by about 50%, while after this period, the plant can carry on generation only if its operation is adapted to requirements of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED).

“The goal of the preliminary design is to define reliable technical and technological solutions and the basis for making an investment decision on the necessary reconstruction work, which will adapt the TPP to the required running conditions, and guarantee the fulfillment of legal provisions regarding the protection of air, water and land. The technical documentation is required for producing tendering documentation for the main design, the construction, delivery, and installation of equipment, and reconstruction works, as well as to validate that  limit values of the plant are in accordance with the requirements of the Industrial Emissions Directive,” the tendering documentation reads.

The bidders must submit the preliminary design plan, the environmental impact assessment report and the tender documentation for the preparation of the main design plan and construction works.

“The subject of the preliminary design plan is the upgrade and reconstruction of the TPP’s technological systems. This includes new DeSOx and DeNOx systems, the upgrading of the existing electro-filter facilities, and the wastewater treatment system, as well as the reconstruction of the cooling tower, and ash and slag transport systems,” according to the tendering documentation.

The preliminary design plan should also cover a supplementary fuel system with a supplementary boiler, the replacement of heavy fuel oil with light fuel oil, upgrading and a new set of noise protection measures, and a new district heating system for the City of Pljevlja.
