Croatia utility Hrvatska Elektroprivreda d.d. (HE) invites expressions of interest from consultants to help develop the 69-MW Ombla hydroelectric project on Croatia's Ombla River. Responses are due July 1.
Croatia's prime minister last year inaugurated the 42.29-MW Lesce hydroelectric plant, the first built in the Balkan nation since it gained independence from Yugoslavia in 1991.
HE now seeks consultants to develop Ombla, which is to include a 130-meter-tall dam and powerhouse connected to a natural underground reservoir located in neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina. The plant is to be located just above Ombla Spring and will operate as a run-of-river project, eventually discharging into the Mediterranean Sea. The project also is to provide potable water to Dubrovnik.
Consultants are to assist the Ombla project implementation unit, supporting procurement, including tender evaluation and finalization of contracts. They also are to assist in site supervision, monitoring, reporting, testing, and commissioning. Maximum budget for the work is 2.2 million euros (US$3.1 million).
Expressions of interest, totaling 10 pages in English including resumes, are due in one original and two copies, together with a copy on CD-ROM, by July 1. They are to be in an envelope marked "Expression of Interest for PIU Consultancy Services for Hydropower Plant Ombla Project." A short-list of firms is to be invited to submit proposals.
