Albania: Andritz Hydro and CERB BG commissioned by KESH for HPP Koman overhaul project, SEE Energy News
Andritz Hydro and Bulgarian company CERB are contracted from Albanian electricity company for overhaul of Albania biggest HPP Koman. CERB is participating as contractor of Austria’s Andritz Hydro, carrying out an overhaul of a total of three transformers.
Bulgarian company Centralna Energoremontna Baza (CERB) announced that it has embarked on a project for overhaul of Albania’s biggest hydropower plant – the Koman HPP. The project is worth about EUR 500,000 and was commissioned by the Albanian state-owned electricity company KESH.
This includes replacing the cooling system of the transformers, processing of transformer oil, paintjob and cleaning. The transformers have not been subjected to repairs since they were produced in 1984. CERB said that the overhaul would not only spare to KESH the EUR 3 million it would have paid for replacing the transformers, but also decrease greatly the risk of failure which occurs with the lack of proper maintenance. , transmits Serbia-energy.eu
