The Macedonia government invites applications for pre-qualification to construct Konsko Dam, which is to include a hydroelectric project, on Macedonia's Konsko River at Gevgelija. Responses are due February 19.

Utility AD Elektrarni na Makedonija already seeks bids by March 31 to construct the 70-MW Boskov Most hydroelectric project on the Mala Reka River. The Ministry of Economy took bids in 2012 for a pre-feasibility study of multi-purpose utilization of the Vardar River, including hydropower.

In the current solicitation, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Economy invites pre-qualification to construct Konsko Dam. The project is to provide water supply for consumption and irrigation as well as a hydropower project expected to generate 29,400 MWh annually.

Solicitation documents may be obtained from the address below or from the procurement Internet site, listed as No. 26-22646/2013. The ministry expects to compile a short-list of about five firms for invitations to bid.
