, News Serbia Energy

Only consortium of bidders consisted of “Optima” from Russia, GGE from Slovakia and METKA from Greece answered on tender for strategic partner for Novi Sad CHP power generation facility construction.
The continuation of negotiations is being expected at the end of July, and investment of strategic partner around 200 million EUR for construction of the new gas central facility in the scope of TPP and Heating Power Plant “Novi Sad” is also expected.

According to EPS, the offer has formally accomplished all tender conditions, negotiations have begun and this process is temporarily stopped after change of authorities on local and republic level because of the changes in Administration of ENS and negotiation team. To remind, the term for construction was optimistically set for 2012 at the time.

However, negotiations should be over this year by introduction of Consortium in mayor ownership of ENS. Procession of Justification Study with ideological project and environmental influence follows after that.
The final decision and contract signing will follow after accepting this study and after that all three partners would involve its parts in ENS. The construction of gas-vapor facility in popular “Teta” can begin then.
The construction of new facility would be the bid, EPS includes existing facility and Novi Sad intends to take heating energy on long terms and to include the right to use construction yard for building new facility project.
The term for construction is estimated to two years since the date of issuing construction license and EPS estimated that new motion can launch work during heating season 2016/2017 already.

The continuation of negotiations considers modified platform of Novi Sad and EPS but we don’t know in which amount it is changed. The thing that was being announced before predicts construction of gas-vapor block with 450 MW of electricity and 300 MW of heating energy.

Novi Sad is interested in saving that would be achieved by cheaper heating energy and it is estimated to be 20 to 40% what would decrease bills of Novi Sad’s citizens that are using central heating.
