These projects form part of the country’s 2017 transmission plan, and are also included in the Decree No. 4/2019, published on January 9, 2019.


The proposals for the project will be received by CEN till November 20, 2019. Administrative and technical offers will be opened on November 21, 2019 and economic bids on February 6, 2020, with a scheduled award date of February 14, 2020.


The project is scheduled for commissioning in 2025.
