Doosan wins Serbian power plant refurbishment contracts
Doosan Power Systems has been awarded two major refurbishment contracts by ElektroprivredaSrbije (EPS) for the Nikola Tesla power plant complex in Serbia.
The West Sussex-based power station construction company will undertake the dismantling and installation of boiler pressure parts on the first-phase revitalisation of Nikola Tesla Unit B1, a 620MW lignite-fired tower boiler.
The €16m (£13m) contract involves the replacement of 2,000 tonnes of boiler pressure parts, including some 70,000 high-integrity pressure welds, over a 24-week period up to hydraulic testing of the installed equipment.
The second contract, valued at around €9m (£7m), will see the company dismantle and install boiler pressure parts and combustion equipment on the major overhaul of Nikola Tesla Unit A5, a 310MW lignite-fired tower boiler.
Work on both contracts is scheduled to commence on 1 June 2012 for a duration of 16 weeks and will be managed by Doosan Power Systems utilising local contract partners employing a multi-skilled workforce of 700 people over the outage programmes.
‘Having successfully completed a number of major boiler rehabilitations at the Nikola Tesla power plant complex, we are looking forward to extending our relationship with ElektroprivredaSrbije by supporting them with these refurbishment contracts,’ said Andy Hunt, managing director of service at Doosan Power Systems.
