Slovakia water agency seeks refurbishment of 10 small hydro projects

Slovakia’s water management agency seeks bids to reconstruct and modernize 10 small hydropower projects. Bids are due February 2.

Slovensky Vodohospodarsky Podnik seeks to refurbish the 10 projects in order to obtain aid under Slovakia’s law to promote renewable energy and high-efficiency cogeneration. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development provided 75 million euros (US$100 million) to Slovakia in 2007 to increase energy efficiency, cut consumption, and generate power from renewable sources such as hydropower.

Waterpower utility Vodohospodarska Vystavba took bids in 2012 to build the Moson 2 small hydropower project. Slovakia utility Slovenske Elektrarne named CKD Blansko to refurbish the 25.5-MW Horna Streda hydroelectric project on Slovakia’s Vah River. (HydroWorld 11/27/07)
