State power utility Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS) has issued an invitation for expressions of interest in international public bidding (with pre-qualification) for the Procurement of Goods, Works and Associated Services for the Renewable Energy Project Kostolac – Wind Park, Serbia, which will be EPS first wind farm.

The project includes the construction of a 66 MW wind farm in Kostolac, 90 km east of Belgrade on the Danube River, the invitation reads.

The application deadline is October 1, while tendering for the project is expected to take place in Q4/2019, EPS said in the invitation published in local newspapers.

A building permit has already been obtained for most of the project

The investment will be financed from a KWf loan. EPS and KfW signed a loan agreement worth EUR 80 million in November 2017.

According to the invitation, project development is already under way (the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Study has been completed, along with the Feasibility Study with the Preliminary Design and Building Permit Design for the Kostolac Wind Farm, and the Conceptual Solution for internal roads), and a building permit has already been obtained for most of the project.

In January 2019, EPS obtained an energy permit for the construction of the wind farm.

The project is divided into two tenders. Tender 1: Wind turbines, foundations, electrical works including 20 wind turbines with a maximum wind turbine rotor height (hub height) of 117 m; and Tender 2: Civil engineering works including internal roads and connections to access roads.

The objective of the project is to increase and diversify energy resources and contribute to the generation of electricity in Serbia without the emission of harmful gases, and hence without adverse environmental impacts. The project will also contribute to sustainable economic development, social development, and environmental and climate protection, according to the invitation.
