PGE Energia Odnawialna, the renewable energy arm of PGE, Poland’s largest state-owned power producer and supplier, invites bids by 5 November for the modernization of the 21.2 MW Dębe hydropower plant on the river Narew in Debe in the central eastern province of Mazowieckie.

The run-of-river plant, which was commissioned in 1963, comprises four Kaplan turbines with nominal capacity of 5.3 MW each, and generates average annual output of 91 GWh. Elektrownia Wodna Debe is located at the site of the Debe dam, which forms Lake Zegrzynski, and which was completed in 1962. The hydropower plant is owned and operated by PGE while the dam is managed by the Regional Water Management Authority in Warsaw.

The contract comprises two stages. The first stage entails the preliminary works including project design, followed in a second stage by the supply, installation, testing and commissioning of four turbines and generators, electrical equipment, including transformers, an automation system and lifting devices, modernization of other existing technical and auxiliary equipment, and execution of construction works (dismantling, adaptation of building structures to new equipment, carrying out works related to drainage of turbine sets and construction of a building deck). The contracted works are expected to take four years, starting this December (2018) and with completion expected by the end of 2022.
