The government of Macedonia invites applications for pre-qualification to build the 68.2-MW Boshkov Most hydroelectric project on a build-operate-transfer basis. Responses are due September 3.
Boshkov Most, also spelled Boskov Most, is to be built in western Macedonia on the Mala Reka River near Debar. It is to include a stone dam, diversion channels, a tunnel, pipeline, and powerhouse for an investment of 70 million euros (US$96.1 million).
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.

They are to be presented in sealed envelopes labeled �Do Not Open � Application for the public competition for expressing interest for participation in the pre-qualification procedure for construction of HPP Boshkov Most � First Stage.�
A short-list of qualified companies is to be invited to submit bids. Qualified parties must pay a fee to obtain tender documents prior to bidding. A bidders meeting and site visit might be scheduled.
