The project is worth around 1.4 million euros.

The reconstruction project should be completed within seven months and is funded by a loan obtained from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The project is a part of a broader plan of the Government of North Macedonia, which includes the construction or reconstruction of six 110 kV transmission lines within a 15 million euros investment program aimed at modernizing the country’s electricity transmission network.
