Derby City Council is seeking tenders for the planned and reactive maintenance requirements at the Longbridge hydro-electric plant. The Longbridge hydro is a small hydro-electric generation
plant located on the bank of the River Derwent in the centre of Derby City.
Work will involve the regular planned maintenance of the hydro equipment and reactive maintenance in the event of a mechanical breakdown. In the event of a mechanical breakdown a 4 hour response time is expected. This is to ensure the efficient and effective operation of the hydro power
plant, to maximise income generation
The service provider must be able to demonstrate a holistic understanding of the technical, mechanical and electrical aspects of maintain a hydro power
plant and will aim to maximise power generation
as Derby City Council will receive the benefit of the electricity generated, the feed in tariff and any electricity which is sold back to the grid.
