Public road management company Putevi Srbije has invited bids to supply 3 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations including smart shelters equipped with solar photovoltaic (PV) panels.

The estimated value of the public procurement is up to RSD 50 million (EUR 426,000), which is the same amount planned for the tendering launched in March last year. The company then intended to install 10 EV charging stations, but the procurement was canceled.

Putevi Srbije operates five fast-charging stations at the Preševo, Šid, Subotica, Dimitrovgrad and Belgrade toll plazas.

New stations will be installed at the Niš and Belgrade toll plazas

According to the tendering documentation, the subject of public procurement is the development of a preliminary design for the installation and commissioning of 175 kW direct current or DC fast-charging stations on highways in the Republic of Serbia, as well as the delivery, installation and commissioning of these fast-charging stations.

Two units will be installed at the plateau of the former Niš toll plaza, and one on the Belgrade toll plaza.

Smart shelters at the EV charging stations will also be installed

The deadline for submitting bids is April 13.

The stations are intended to be used on a charge-by-charge basis, a suitable model for toll plazas, motorway stops or gas stations.

The shelters will have integrated lighting, a Wi-Fi router, and polycrystalline solar PV panels

The installation of smart shelters at the stations is also envisaged.

According to the tendering documentation, the smart shelters will have integrated lighting, a Wi-Fi router, and polycrystalline solar PV panels, each with a power output of at least 285 W and a minimum efficiency rate of 16.9%.

Serbia currently has about 30 stations for EVs.

A few days ago, the country introduced incentives for purchasing electric and hybrid vehicles, which was announced earlier as one of the measures to reduce air pollution.
