The electricity transmission system operator KOSTT intends using the proceeds of a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction (EBRD) for achieving full compliance with the N-1 electricity transmission grid security criteria, the bank said.

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, the bank said.

The proposed project has a total estimated cost of about EUR 36 million to be financed by the bank and the company, and will require the procurement for the construction of a new 110 kV substation at Mitrovica (Mitrovica 2) and associated 110 kV overhead lines, the Drenasi 2 (SS 220/35/10 kV and 220 kV transmission lines) and new 110 kV transmission line SS Rahoveci – SS Theranda, as well as the construction of Fushe Kosova (SS & transmission lines) and Pristina 6 (SS & 110 kV underground transmission cables) and consultancy services for a project preparation and capacity building and for a project implementation consultant, the procurement notice said.
