French utility again seeks suppliers of 50 hydro turbine-generators

Electricite de France (EDF) has renewed its qualification system for 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 2008. (HydroWorld 9/16/08)

In a separate solicitation, EDF invited hydro equipment suppliers in February 2009 to qualify to provide turbines to projects in the French utility’s hydroelectric system. (HydroWorld 2/5/09) The solicitations are among several by EDF seeking equipment and services to refurbish its hydro projects.

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.

Qualification documents may be obtained from the address below. Applications for pre-qualification may be submitted to the same address.
