Kostt, the electricity transmission system operator (TSO) in Kosovo*, intends using the proceeds of a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and development to enable achieving full compliance with the N-1 electricity transmission grid security criteria, the bank said on its website. This is a key technical requirement for Kostt to join the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (Entso-E), which seeks to promote market integration and transparency in electricity transmission. Specifically, the loan will improve the stability and reliability of Kosovo’s* power system; reduce technical losses; and improve the TSO’s ability to manage a liberalised market system, according to the report.

The proposed project has a total estimated cost of about EUR 36 million to be financed by EBRD and Kostt, and will require the procurement of goods, works and services. These are supply and installation of GIS substations of power transformers, and transmission lines and cables.

The contracts will be tendered through EBRD’s Client E-Procurement Platform (ECEPP). The bank invited suppliers and contractors wishing to participate in goods, works and services contracts.


* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status and is in line with UNSCR 1244/99 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.
