Project Description

his project concerns the upgrade of the existing 220 kV overhead line between substation (SS) Kraljevo 3 and SS Bajina Basta to a 400 kV (single or double circuit) connection. It constitutes the first phase of a larger programme to upgrade the Central Serbia electricity transmission system from 220 kV to 400 kV voltage level. The upgrade of Kraljevo 3 substation is already in the last phase of preparation, along with the new 400 kV overhead transmission line in direction of Kragujevac 2 substation (400 kV). These investments together with this project will form a strong 400 kV transmission system in the middle of the most congested regional Northeast-Southwest and East-West transmission corridors.

The WBIF (EU) has provided grant assistance for the preparation of a feasibility study, preliminary design, and environmental and social impact assessment to investigate the viability of upgrading the existing 220 kV overhead line between substation (SS) Kraljevo 3 and SS Bajina Basta to a 400 kV (single or double circuit) connection. The study, undertaken by Infrastructure Project Facility 3, is now complete.
