PODGORICA (Montenegro), December 5 (SeeNews) - Montenegro's majority state-owned power utility company EPCG [MNG:EPCG] has opened four tenders with a total value of 2.8 million euro ($3.1 million) for overhaul works at Pljevlja coal-fired thermal power plant, it said.

The company plans to invest 655,820 euro in the overhaul of equipment in Pljevlja's engine room and auxiliary units, 822,800 euro in the overhaul of the boiler plant, 810,700 euro in the maintenance of the boiler plant and milling plants, and 465,850 euro in the overhaul of the coal dust preparation system and slag drainage, EPCG said in a statement on Wednesday.

The deadlines for the submission of bids in the tenders expire on January 16 and 17, 2020, EPCG said.

A consortium led by China's Dongfang Electric (DEC) won last month a tender forthe reconstruction of Pljevlja coal-fired thermal power plant. The offer of the DEC-led consortium, which also includes Montenegrin companies Bemax, BB Solar and Permonte, was priced at 54.4 million euro.

In December 2018, Montenegro's government said it plans to complete Pljevlja's modernisation by 2021 in order to avoid closure of the plant. The power plant has a utility life of 20,000 hours in the period between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2023, environment minister Pavle Radulovic said back then.
