Utility Elektroprivreda of Bosnia and Herzegovina has awarded a contract to Austria-based Strabag AG to rehabilitate and modernize the dam safety monitoring system of three hydroelectric projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The contract is valued at EUR2.98 million (about US4.7 million).
Elektroprivreda BiH seeks supply, delivery and installation or rehabilitation of monitoring equipment for the 181.2-MW Jablanica, 57-MW Grabovica, and 210-MW Salakovac hydropower projects. Work is to include reconstruction of geodetic marks and installation of geodetic equipment as well as implementation of a statistical and mathematical monitoring model and related data acquisition system.
The solicitation follows recruiting of consultants in 2007 by Elektroprivreda of Bosnia and Herzegovina and two other Bosnia utilities to assist in dam safety and rehabilitation work at several hydro projects.
The European Investment Bank approved a loan to Bosnia and Herzegovina for rehabilitation of hydro plants and electricity distribution systems as part of the Energy Community of Southeast Europe APL 3 Project.
