Cypriot solution sought

RVA appointed to oversee dismantling of Cypriot power station

Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) has awarded RVA Group a consultancy services contract for Moni Power Station (MPS) dismantling and associated works. MPS is located on the south coast of the island of Cyprus, approximately 14 km east from Limassol. It started operation in the mid-1960s and was taken out of commercial operation in 2013.

The consultancy services will include the provision of independent expert support to EAC during the planning and preparations phase, confirming the demolition contractor’s scope of work and developing contract and technical specifications.

The major items for dismantling/demolishing include six 30 MW steam/heavy fuel oil-fired turbine/boiler generating units and all their ancillary equipment including all pipework; six chimneys; the fuel oil pump house; and the 66/132KV Switchyard.

An international tender procedure for the selection of a dismantling demolition contractor for a turnkey project, is envisaged to be issued in February 2020 and the contract award is expected to take place in October of the same year.
