State power grid operator Elektromreža Srbije (EMS) has launched preparatory works for building an EUR 8.15 million substation in western Serbia, which will help improve the stability of electricity transmission and distribution systems of Serbia, Montenegro, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, local media reported.

High-voltage equipment for the 220/110 kV Bistrica substation, worth EUR 1.4 million, will be procured through a loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB), according to reports.

The substation, located in the village of Radoinja near Nova Varoš, will have state-of-the-art equipment in line with European and global standards, Varoške Novine was told at EMS.

The project envisages connecting the substation with 220 kV power lines running between the town of Bajina Bašta and hydropower plant HE Bistrica and between the towns of Požega in western Serbia and Pljevlja in Montenegro, according to reports. At the same time, a 110 kV power line will link Bistrica with power substations in Kokin Brod, Potpeć, and Mt. Zlatibor.

The substation, whose completion is targeted for November 2020, will ensure long-term electricity supply for residents of the Serbian municipalities Nova Varoš, Čajetina, Priboj, Prijepolje, Sjenica, Novi Pazar, Raška, and Tutin.

The location was picked so that the future substation does not endanger the environment or nearby facilities. There are no protected natural areas, rivers, or springs used for water supply in the vicinity that could be affected, Varoške Novine was told at EMS.
