September 28 (SeeNews) - Bosnia's state-owned power distribution company Elektrokrajina has launched a tender for a grid overhaul project, to be funded with the proceeds of a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the lender said on Friday.
Elektrokrajina is looking for contractors to reconstruct the medium and low voltage networks in nine business units - Banja Luka, Prijedor, Laktasi, Srbac and Novi Grad, Gradiska, Prnjavor, Mrkonjic Grad and Kozarska Dubica, in two lots, the EBRD said in a statement.
The contracts includes supply and installation of medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) equipment and reconstruction of underground and overhead lines in urban, suburban and rural areas.
It is expected that the contract will commence in the first quarter of 2019 and will be completed within three years.

Bosnia is made up of two autonomous entities - the Serb Republic and the Federation. Elektrokrajina is based in Banja Luka, the largest city in the Serb Republic.
