Tenders invited for dismantling contractor in Cyprus

The international search has begun for a contractor, to execute a Cypriot power station dismantling process for the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC).

It was announced late last autumn that RVA Group had been appointed to oversee the complex 26-month assignment at Moni Power Station – a 1960s construction approximately 14km east of Limassol – and the development of a detailed tender package was one of the first crucial elements of the initial planning and preparation phase.

A number of local partners – specialising in safety management, structural engineering and geotechnical science – are already working with RVA’s team of engineers. Now all eyes are on the identification of a dismantling contractor who can help fulfil the complex brief.

The major items for dismantling/demolishing include six 30MW steam and oil-fired turbines, boiler generating units and all ancillary equipment, six chimneys and switchyard. All have been out of operational use since 2013.

The turnkey contract will also require the removal, collection, transportation and management of all asbestos containing materials; the careful salvaging of specific assets for use as display exhibits in a local museum; as well as clearance of the site to ground level and environmentally responsible backfilling.

Full details of the tender process can be found on the EAC website.
