COLENCO Ltd., a leading consulting firm in the energy sector, is pleased to announce the signing of a significant contract with MEPSO (Macedonian Transmission System Operator) for the provision of consultancy services related to the construction of crucial energy infrastructure projects. The contract entails the technical supervision of the construction of a 400 kV overhead transmission line and the development of a new 400/110 kV substation including 400 kV bay in SS Bitola 2, integral components of the ambitious Corridor 8 project.
The 400 kV interconnection line, stretching from SS Bitola 2 to the Macedonian/Albanian border, represents a vital link in the transmission of electrical energy across the region. This milestone marks the final phase of Corridor 8, facilitating the efficient exchange of electricity between Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, and Italy.
In addition, the consultancy services encompass the establishment of the new 400/110 kV substation in the Ohrid-Struga region. This state-of-the-art substation, integrated into the transmission network, will play a crucial role in addressing the challenges faced in the southwestern part of the network. The substation will be connected as line in – line out of the new 400 kV line, establishing a robust energy pathway between Bitola and Elbasan.
Recognizing the regional significance of the interconnection, COLENCO is honored to contribute to a project recognized as a Project of Energy Community Interest (PECI) by the Energy Community Ministerial Council. This distinction underscores the strategic importance of interconnection and reinforces the commitment of all stakeholders to enhance energy connectivity and foster regional cooperation.
The signing of this contract between COLENCO and MEPSO represents a significant milestone in advancing the energy infrastructure of the region. With its extensive expertise and profound commitment to excellence, COLENCO is ready to ensure the successful realization of these key projects. Through meticulous technical supervision and a dedication to quality, COLENCO will play a pivotal role in the development of a robust and efficient energy network, bolstering regional energy security and promoting sustainable growth.
