Montenegro’s power utility Elektroprivreda Crne Gore (EPCG) has launched tendering for the environmental reconstruction of the Pljevlja thermal power plant (TPP).

The deadline to file offers expires on September 9 and EPCG expects the contract with the selected bidder for TPP Pljevlja’s environmental reconstruction could be signed by the end of the year.

The estimated value of the investment is EUR 45 million, EPCG said in a press release.

The preliminary design for the environmental reconstruction of TPP Pljevlja has been drafted by Essen-based industrial group Steag Energy Services.

The plan is to keep the annual shut-downs of the plant to less than two to three months

The project implementation is scheduled to take place in the period 2019-2021, in what is to extend the operation of TPP Pljevlja for 20 years.

The plan is to keep the annual shut-downs of the plant to less than two to three months in order to preserve the energy volumes needed for balancing and market purposes stable, EPCG said.

The reconstruction will ensure compliance with the requirements and adherence to the strictest environmental protection parameters as envisaged under the latest EU Decision 2017/1442.

Environmental reconstruction will result in a reduction of all emissions and products of coal combustion, as well as of chemical processes accompanying electricity generation below the limit values, all in line with the statutory regulations of Montenegro and the EU directives on emissions from coal-fired TPPs.

Revitalization of Maljevac landfill to run simultaneously

The environmental reconstruction project is to involve the construction of a flue gas desulphurization system, a denitrification system, enhancement of the ESP operation as well as the development of the wastewater treatment system.

A EUR 20 million revitalization of the Maljevac landfill will run simultaneously. The reclamation of the landfill will take place in stages between 2019 and 2023.

The environmental reconstruction project is also important for ensuring the district heating for the city of Pljevlja, which will be realized within 12 months from the signing of the contract for the environmental reconstruction, EPCG said.
