Dispute over construction of Lithuanian CHP plant

Hitachi has failed in its bid to overturn a decision to award a contract to a competitor bid to develop the Vilnius Cogeneration power plant.

A consortium of Switzerland's Hitachi Zosen Inova, a Hitachi subsidiary, and its partner Abener Energia of Vilnius CHP Spain that were participating in the tender filed a lawsuit to a Vilnius court, asking to annul the results and recognize it as the winner.

However the court rejected the plea. A consortium led by Germany's Steinmuller Babcock Environment remains the winning tender.

Steinmuller Babcock Environment, which includes Budimex, one of Poland's largest engineering and infrastructure construction groups, and Lithuania's gas pipeline construction company Kauno Dujotekio Statyba, will develop the plant for EUR178.29m. The plant's biofuel burning equipment and supplies infrastructure should be constructed by Poland's energy object builder Rafako for EUR148.65m.
