Macedonia to seek bids for design, construction of 70-MW Boskov Most

The government of Macedonia plans to seek bids for design and construction of the 70-MW Boskov Most hydroelectric project on the Mala Reka River in western Macedonia.

The government invited applications for pre-qualification in 2007 to build Boskov Most, also spelled Boshkov Most, on a build-operate-transfer basis near Debar.

Utility AD Elektrani na Makedonija (Elem) now says it intends to apply for a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development to build Boskov Most for an estimated cost of 84 million euros (US$113.1 million).

The project is to include a stone dam, diversion channels, a tunnel, pipeline, and powerhouse. With funding from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, a 2003 feasibility study of the then 45-MW project, recommended it be increased in capacity to 70 MW and be redesigned as a peaking plant.

Elem said it plans to seek bids for:
o Owner's engineering services, including design, procurement, and supervision;
o Extensive civil works, including access roads, powerhouse, penstock, intakes, and channels;
o Dam construction;
o Tunneling; and
o Supply of turbines and associated electro-mechanical equipment.

For information, suppliers, contractors, and consultants are invited to contact Ivan Trpeski, AD Elektrani na Makedonija (Elem), 11 Oktomvri 9, 1000 Skopje, FYR Macedonia; (389) 2-3149115; Fax: (389) 2-3224492; E-mail:; Internet:
