A Macedonia utility invites expressions of interest in providing geological investigation services for construction of Lukovo Pole Dam on the Kosovo border to divert water through three existing Macedonia hydro plants and construction of the 5-MW Crn Kamen hydro plant. Responses are due April 27.
AD Elektrani na Makedonija-Skopje (JSC Macedonian Power Plants-Skopje) seeks consultants to define geotechnical conditions for construction of the alignment and engineering structures of the dam, 20-kilometer headrace canal, and the small hydro plant.
The utility recruited consultants in 2010 for environmental and social impact assessments of the plan to build Lukovo Pole, a 71-meter-tall rockfill dam, reservoir, and intake canal to divert water from the Korab mountains.
The project is to divert additional water through Macedonia's existing Mavrovo River cascade, resulting in additional generation at the 150-MW Vrutok, 19.2-MW Raven, and 12.8-MW Vrben hydroelectric plants. Additionally, the 5-MW Crn Kamen hydropower plant is to be built at the primary outlet of Lukovo Pole. The Lukovo Pole-Crn Kamen project is included in Macedonia's plans for small hydro development.
Expressions of interest and qualifications are due to the address below by April 27. For information, contact Igor Nikolov, Head of PIU, Development and Investments Department, JSC Macedonian Power Plants, 11 Oktomvri, Skopje 1000, Macedonia; (389) 2-3149144; Fax: (389) 2-3149100; E-mail: email@example.com; Internet: www.elem.com.mk/en/elem.asp.
