Utility Energias de Portugal (EDP) seeks bids to supply equipment for the 170-MW Baixo Sabor pumped-storage project on the Sabor River in northern Portugal. Bids are due July 31.
EDP previously called for bids for civil construction of Baixo Sabor after the European Commission withdrew its environmental opposition to the 354 million euro (US$484 million) project. (HNN 9/12/07)
The utility seeks all equipment for the project, including reversible turbine-generators, hydro-mechanical equipment, transformers, command and control equipment, and auxiliary equipment. Baixo Sabor is to include a 123-meter-tall double arch dam, a 45-meter-tall gravity dam, and a powerhouse containing two turbine-generators. It is expected to go on line in late 2012 or early 2013.
