Kosovo Energy Distribution Services (KEDS) told Vesti newspaper it does not claim Gazivode hydropower plant complex in Kosovo*. The company is owned by Turkish companies Çalik and Limak since 2013, but the power infrastructure at the site is controlled by EPS (Electric Power Industry of Serbia).

„Our company is in electric power distribution, maintaining equipment in the field and payment collection. We have nothing to do with production. About these issues you will have to contact Kosovo Energy Corporation (KEK),“ the company told the newspaper’s reporter, denying the information from the media that this company bought Gazivode and that it wants control over the facilities. The HPP earned over EUR 10 million last year. It is part of hydro system Ibar–Lepenac and hasn’t been included in any agreement between the governments in Belgrade and Priština, which have been negotiating about cooperation, property and social issues for several years.

* 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.
