Criteria for selection of the most favorable bidder

EPCG, according to a study for the TPP construction, intends to build a new unit of 220 to 300 megawatts on the location of an existing power plant .The bidder’s obligation would be to provide a credit of 75 to 85 percent of the total amount needed for the project or, at certain percentage with the project financing, to offer the option of joint venture. Majority stake in EPCG is owned by the state, and it is managed by an Italian company A2A.

From EPCG announced that the offer would be evaluated according to criteria of the best relationships between financial- technical- environmental and commercial proposals and a minimum of total risk for the project.
The government should make a separate bill in December that would define the TPP construction, in a model similar to those for highway. The state will not announce a tender for the TPP construction and after choosing the best bid for the job will sign the intergovernmental agreement.

By December, at the A2A request, it is also predicted the merger of the coal mine, in which Italian A2A has the largest individually owned, to the Power Utility Company.

Non-governmental organizations, dedicated to the environmental protection, condemned the manner in which the government planned to allow the construction of the second TPP in Pljevlje, a city that is now polluted due to the work of the existing plant.
