Preliminary design for the environmental reconstruction of the Pljevlja Thermal Power Plant in Montenegro is entrusted to Essen-based industrial group Steag Energy Services GmbH. The German company is specialized in the field of energy, both conventional and nuclear, as well as renewable sources.

Montenegro’s power utility Elektroprivreda Crne Gore (EPCG) announced it picked an offer by Steag Energy Services for the drafting of a preliminary design project for the reconstruction of Pljevlja plant with an installed capacity of 225 MW. The public procurement procedure was finished on February 1. There were six bids.

The project, designed to avert the major polluter’s shutdown, includes installing new DeSOx and DeNOx systems, upgrading of the existing electro-filter facilities, developing a wastewater treatment system, reconstructing the transportation system for coal combustion products, and building a heat facility as part of the Pljevlja municipality’s district heating project.

EPCG expects to sign the contract with Steag Energy Services in the next few days. The company has 7 months to complete the work.

The arrival of such a renowned company in Montenegro represents a guarantee that the planned reconstruction of Block I of Pljevlja TPP will be carried out in accordance with the latest standards and technologies, EPCG said in a statement.

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 the 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 German company has implemented large number of projects during last couple of years, in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America and is present in more than 80 countries worldwide. It is one of the biggest electricity producers in Germany, possessing the plants with total installed capacity of over 7 000 MW.
