Additional financing information:
Transco has applied for an EBRD Loan up to an amount of EUR 15.5 million. The project is expected to be cofinanced with Transco's own funds and grant contributions that are still under discussion.

The Project is critical to resolving major problem of high voltages on Bosnia and Herzegovina's transmission network which will enable quality voltage regulation on the B&H's transmission network, reduction of active power losses, increase of reliability and stability of the B&H's transmission network, increase of the life expectancy of the equipment and greater integration of renewable energy sources. Installation of variable shunt reactors will have a positive impact on the voltages in neighbouring countries as they are experiencing the same problem thus enabling cross-border trade and allocation of power transmission capacity.
The project will require the procurement of the following goods, works and services:
a. Supply, construction works and installation of a four 150 MVAr variable shunt reactors and adjacent 400 kV equipment at four locations:
• SS 400/110/x kV Banja Luka 6;
• SS 400/220/110/x kV Mostar 4;
• SS 400/220/110 kV Tuzla 4;
• SS 400/220/110/x kV Visegrad;

b. Other works necessary for the installation of variable shunt reactors including:
• construction works and installation of new connection bay 400 kV in SS Mostar 4,
• Supply and replacement of existing SCADA system in SS Tuzla,
• Integration of new equipment in the existing SCADA systems in SS Banja Luka 6, SS Mostar 4 and SS Visegrad and adaptation of the protection and control systems in all 4 substations.

c. Consultancy services to assist the Project Implementation Unit.
