About the project

 

Duration: 2017 - 2022

Budget: €24.5 million funded by the European Union through the German development bank - Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW)

National partners: Ministry of Economy on behalf of Montenegro as Beneficiary and CGES as Project Executing Agency

'Trans-Balkan Electricity Corridor (I) - Grid Section in Montenegro - Part II' project is the second part of a larger project with the full title “Trans-Balkan Electricity Corridor (I) – Grid Section in Montenegro” that aims to increase the cross-border transmission of electrical energy between Montenegro and Serbia, domestic transmission of electrical energy, efficiency of the transmission system in Montenegro by reduction of technical loses on transmission level and the security of the electric power supply in Montenegro by reduction of annual average outage hours of electricity supply in transmission system substations in western coastal part of Montenegro.

 

Part II of the project is divided into four components:

C1: Replacement of high voltage equipment and other equipment in several high voltage substations.

C2: Reconstruction of control and protection systems and the integration of several existing substations into SCADA communication.

C3: Replacement existing 220kV OHL with new 400kV OHL from Pljevlja 2 to Montenegrin border and extension of 400kV switchyard in substation Pljevlja 2.

C4: Integration of SS 110/35 kV Brezna and associated transmission line into the public transmission grid.
