The Grantee invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the "Proposal") from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to develop a feasibility study for the replacement of outdated power generation units at the Burshtynskaya power plant.

The Grantee, DTEK LLC, through its subsidiary Zakhidenergo, owns and operates the coal-fired Burshtynskaya Power Plant, consisting of 12 power generation units with a combined capacity of 2,300 megawatts (MW). DTEK plans to replace four of the units (approximately 200MW units each for a total of nearly 800MW though timing of replacement will depend on recommendations of the Feasibility Study). DTEK is considering multiple technologies for the replacement units, including ultra-supercritical, supercritical, and circulating fluidized bed, with sizes of individual units dependent on multiple factors. The new units would have modern air pollution controls, reducing emissions of SOx, NOx and other pollutants to one sixth the amount for the electricity produced. The power from this plant would be sold on the nationwide wholesale electricity market at market-based prices or exported. The expected cost of eventual replacement of the four existing 200 MW units is approximately $1.8 billion.

DTEK is a Ukrainian energy company that is a subsidiary of SCM (System Capital Management), a Ukrainian diversified industrial group. DTEK owns coal mines and majority stakes in power generation companies Vostokenergo, Zakhidenergo, and Dniproenergo. Total electric power generation capacity of DTEK is in excess of 19 GW. DTEK is interested in determining U.S. solutions and equipment for this project.

This Feasibility Study will assess the technical, economic and financial feasibility of and aid the Grantee in soliciting offers for, the construction of new coal-fired unit(s) at the existing Burshtynskaya Thermal Power Plant (TPP) and retire the equivalent coal-fired units that are over 40 years old. This study shall review four existing 200 megawatt (MW) units at Burshtynskaya TPP.

The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $602,435 grant to the Grantee from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA).
