Vranduk Hydropower Project

Utility Elektroprivreda of Bosnia and Herzegovina has pre-qualified seven groups to bid for construction of the 20-MW Vranduk hydroelectric project in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Elektroprivreda invited pre-qualification for the work in March.

Elektroprivreda set a deadline of November 11 for the groups to submit bids for the project.

Work is to include design, construction, equipment manufacturing and installation, testing and commissioning of Vranduk. The run-of-river project is to include a dam, fish ladder, intake, power tunnel, powerhouse containing three Kaplan turbine-generators, a 6-kilometer-long reservoir, tailrace, deepening of the riverbed downstream and access roads.
