  • UPDATE - Portugal utility extends bid date for 170-MW Baixo Sabor

    Utility Energias de Portugal (EDP) has extended the deadline for bids to supply generating equipment for the 170-MW Baixo Sabor pumped-storage project. Bids now are due September 1.

    EDP previously called for bids by July 31 to equip Baixo Sabor, on the Sabor River in northern Portugal. (HNN 3/20/08) The utility took bids in January for civil construction after the European Commission withdrew its environmental opposition to the 354 million euro (US$484 million) project. (HNN 9/12/07)

    EDP 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.

    Bid documents in digital format may be obtained from the address below for 2,500 euros (US$3,896) in cash or crossed check to EDP - Gestao da Producao de Energia SA.

    Bids, in Portuguese, now are due by 5 p.m. September 1.
