Electricite de France (EDF) is qualifying companies to supply about 50 turbine-generators and other equipment over five years to hydro projects in the EDF system.
EDF said it intends to install hydro generating units of from 100 kW to 12 MW over five years and seeks to qualify a panel of equipment suppliers for the period in which it would issue invitations to tender. The utility said the qualification notice is a renewal of a similar notice in 2007. (HNN 2/28/07)
In a separate solicitation, EDF recently called for bids to supply at least 24 replacement governors and 22 replacement excitation systems for EDF hydroelectric projects throughout France. (HNN 9/11/08)
In the current solicitation, companies would be required to supply and commission turbine-generator sets of less than 12 MW, possibly including civil engineering, valves, pressure pipe, and electrical and control equipment.
