Serbia seeks electro-mechanical equipment to refurbish eight small hydro projects

Serbia utility Elektroprivreda Srbije seeks bids to supply and install electro-mechanical equipment for reconstruction of eight small hydroelectric projects totaling 9.79 MW. Bids are due December 3.

Elektroprivreda awarded a contract in March to Voith to modernize the 96-MW Zvornik hydropower project, increasing its capacity to 124 MW. Serbia’s energy ministry developed a National Action Plan for Renewable Energy to increase green power sources to 27 percent of the country’s overall mix by 2020 from 21 percent.
