Lithuania utility seeks new unit for 900-MW Kruonis

Lithuanian utility Lietuvos Energija AB seeks bids to supply and install a new generating unit at the 900-MW Kruonis pumped-storage project at Elektrenai, Lithuania. Bids are due November 29.

Lietuvos Energija awarded a contract in 2007 to VA Tech Hydro to supply four replacement turbines and associated equipment to refurbish Kruonis, which was built by the Soviet Union in the 1960s. The utility’s shareholders voted in 2008 to spin off Kruonis and the 100-MW Kaunas hydroelectric project into separate companies to comply with a European Union directive requiring utilities to separate their transmission functions from their generation and supply businesses.

Lietuvos Energija seeks bids to supply and install a new 250-MW variable-speed turbine-generator to expand Kruonis. The work is to require 32 months.

Solicitation documents may be obtained until 1 p.m. November 23. Bids in English or Lithuanian are due by 1 p.m. November 29. Tendering and communication with bidders are to be conducted via a central public procurement information system on the Internet at
