 High voltage power lines, Ukraine

Publisher: CEE Bankwatch Network

Volume: 4 pages, pdf


In April 2009 the National Energy Company of Ukraine – Ukrenergo – announced plans to construct two new high voltage transmission lines with hoped for financial support from the EBRD. One of the lines is a 330 kV transmission line to connect the remote southern part of the Odessa region to Ukraine’s joint power grid and bypassing the territory of Moldova. The second is a 750 kV transmission line from the Zaporizhska Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) to a substation in the Khersonska oblast in southern Ukraine. The project sponsor has started an environmental impact assessment (EIA) process and conducted a series of scoping meetings in Ukraine between April 27 and May 13. The estimated total cost of the two projects may amount to EUR 350 million, with EBRD financing up to EUR 160 million. Co-financing is also expected to be provided by the European Investment Bank.
