Uzbekenergo announces pre-qualification for modernization of Navoi thermal power station

8 August 2014

Uzbekenergo state joint stock company announced a pre-qualification for Navoi Thermal Power Station Modernization Project.

Uzbekenergo intends to prequalify contractors and/or firms for the construction on a full turn-key basis of one unit of 450 MW nominal capacity combined cycle cogeneration plant at Navoi Thermal Power Station.

The applications for pre-qualification should be submitted till 18 September 2014. It is expected that Invitation for Bids will be made in October 2014. The project envisages construction of gas booster station.

The project cost is US$520 million. Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) allocated US$360 million to the project, Fund for Reconstruction and Development of Uzbekistan - US$100 million. Uzbekenergo will also issue own resources to finance the project.

The consortium of Turkish Calik Enerji Sanayi ve Ticaret AS and Spanish Initec completed construction of combined-cycle plant with the capacity of 450 megawatt at the Navoi thermal power station in October 2012. The project cost was US$530 million.

Japan's Mitsubishi supplied combined-cycle plant with the capacity of 478 megawatt to Navoi thermal power station. The project will allow to produce 2.8 billion KWH of electricity a year and cut consumption of fuel by 1.8 times. It will save 400 million tonnes of gas or over US$110 million.

Total capacities of the Navoi thermal power station with new combined-cycle plant reached 1,546 megawatt, which allows to produce 7.9 billion KWH electricity a year.
