The project comprises investment schemes in the electricity distribution network in BiH. The programme will involve investment in substations and transformers, medium and low voltage networks, customer connections, smart metering and IT.
The planned investments are aimed at transformation of the distribution network to secure stable and reliable supply, connect new users, improve the service quality and decrease losses which will contribute to the economic development of BiH.
If the programme’s investment schemes were located in the EU, they would fall under the Annex II of the EIA Directive (85/337/EEC) amended by Directives 97/11/EC and 2003/35/EC. The vast majority of the programme schemes are expected to be reinforcements of medium and low voltage equipment and facilities with limited environmental impact.
The Bank will require the Promoter to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in compliance with the Bank’s Guide to Procurement and applicable EU rules.
