Development and Private Sector Participation in Pljevlja Thermal Power Complex, Montenegro

Client: Fichtner Gmbh (funded by EU EAR - European Agency of Reconstruction)

Name of partner(s): NA

Start/Completion Date: January 2009 - November 2009

Project description: SEEC supported Fichtner in listed Main Scope by providing Power Studies, Load Flow, Dyunamic etc. Fichtner investigated the optimal strategy for new thermal power generation capacities in Pljevlja and Maoce, Montenegro. At present, only lignite is being extracted from the Pljevlja basin and brought to the nearby thermal power complex, Unit 1 (225 MW). Furthermore, Montenegro plans to construct a new power plant unit either at the Pljevlja mine or in the Maoce basin. To identify the most efficient option, Fichtner assessed the remaining reserves of Pljevlja and Maoce as well as the corresponding extraction costs. In addition, Fichtner reviewed the viability of cement production and its impact on extraction costs. Further technical analyses were undertaken to examine the thermal power plant and the transmission capacities. The existing power plant was verified regarding coal demand and rehabilitation investments by the utility and the capital cost of the second unit were assessed by reviewing external data. The electrical part encompasses study on the transmission capacities for additional power supply by Pljevlja and the potential for export. Cost calculations for expansions and/or rehabilitation were prepared. SEEC has provided support to Fichtner in execution of the following services:
