Slovenia utility seeks transformer, other equipment for 2.26-MW Melje hydro project

Hydro operator Dravske Elektrarne Maribor d.o.o. (DEM) seeks bids to supply a transformer and other equipment for rehabilitation of the 2.26-MW Melje hydroelectric project on Slovenia’s Drava River. Bids are due June 1.

DEM operates eight hydro projects on the Drava as well as three thermal and four photovoltaic power plants in Slovenia. It took bids in 2008 for supply of pump-turbines and motor-generators for the 400-MW Kozjak pumped-storage project. Last year, Slovenia hydro utility Savske Elektrarne Ljubljana d.o.o. took bids to rehabilitate the 21-MW Moste hydroelectric project on Slovenia’s Sava River.

DEM now seeks bids for five lots for the two-unit Melje, a minimum flow plant built at Melje Dam near the 126-MW Zlatolicje hydro project. Work is to include supply of electrical equipment and materials, medium-voltage transformer and hydraulic controller and cooling system; rehabilitation of hydro-mechanical equipment and corrosion protection; and construction work. The various lots are expected to require from 45 days to five months to complete.

Bid documents may be obtained from the DEM Internet site at or from the address below. Questions may be submitted through May 25.

Bids, in Slovenian, are due by noon June 1. For information, contact Barbara Srebnik, DEM d.o.o., Obrezna ulica 170, SI-2000 Maribor, Slovenia; (386) 23005494; Fax: (386) 23005685; E-mail:; Internet:
