We have been very pleased to learn that
Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (MENR) together with
Turkish Electricity Generation Public Company (EUAS)
have released a new tender for design activities to obtain design drawings for 170 MWe or more electricity generating power plant which will fire local indigenous coal/ lignite in either pulverised or CFB firing methods.
Contract is purely for steam boiler design activities to obtain drawings for 3-different local coal samples,
for the ranges 1000-1400, 1400-1800, 1500-2000 kcal/kg LHV.
We understand that the local interested engineering parties would be in need of necessary design software/ hardware and young local engineering talents to finalise the design work within 270 calendar days. Proposal Validity is to be 90 days.
Priced proposals will be collected on 22nd March 2007.
Contract budget is estimated not to exceed a figure of 20 million US Dollars
For such a big/ mega project, one company can not handle all work so consortiums will be formed. A location in a university technopark will be a preferable place to work in order to utilize the hardware/ software backbone as well as available engineering/ academic workforce.
That is an extra ordinary development in the local market, a great opportunity for our engineering companies, to sail overseas. We are very happy to learn that the Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources showed confidence in local young engineering talent.
