Switzerland is helping Kruševac, Užice and Vrbas in the energy rehabilitation of 17 public buildings. The public call in three lots should be published in August. The project for 23 buildings in total in Serbia lasts until the middle of next year.

The Ministry of Mining and Energy said it intends to publish tendering documentation within a month for the supply and installation of plant and equipment for energy rehabilitation or reconstruction of six buildings in the city of Kruševac, five in the city of Užice and six buildings in Vrbas municipality. The Municipal Energy Efficiency and Management Project (MEEMP) in Serbia is conducted in cooperation with Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).

The target date for the launch is August 17, according to the announcement. The information on the official start of the tender will be published on the web pages of the project and the contracting authority, while the documentation will be available for download only on Swiss public procurement website Simap.

The deadline for offers will be in the second half of November, the statement adds. Each municipal unit is one lot, and those interested in two or three lots need to submit separate offers.

The approximate starting date for works is January and they should be finished in September 2021. All prices in the offers must be denominated in Swiss francs.

The Swiss government supports Kruševac, Užice, Paraćin and Vrbas to reconstruct 23 public buildings such as kindergartens and schools so that they improve energy efficiency and eliminate negative impacts on the environment.

The deadline for the project’s implementation is 42 months through June of next year and the budget is EUR 8.4 million. The Swiss contribution is EUR 7.4 million and the rest is covered by the local authorities.
