Polish water manager Regionalny Zarzad Gospodarki Wodnej w Warszawie (RGZW) has awarded a contract worth US$17.5 million to Przedsiebiorstwo Robot Inzynieryjnych POL-AQUA SA for rehabilitation and repair of the 160.2-MW Wloclawek Dam on Poland's Vistula River.

RGZW last solicited bids for the work in August, which include improvements to the density of the dam's body and face, development of an automatic measurement and control system, repair of civil construction and mechanical and electrical equipment, lock repairs, and reconstruction of fish ladders.

Wloclawek was built between 1962 and 1970. Polish utility Energa Hydro Sp. Z.o.o. awarded a contract to ABB Sp z.o.o. in 2011 to replace a transformer block in the project's hydroelectric plant.
