Especially interesting for our trainers is exchange of experience and practices with the engineers and technicians of the KRG Ministry.
The final workshop for the Project “Feasibility Study 400 kV OHL Bajina Bašta – Kraljevo” was held on February 20, 2018.
E&E carried out technical inspection of the works on construction of 2×400 kV OHL SS Pančevo 2 – border with Romania, which was built as an interconnection cross-border transmission line, as the first completed of the Transbalkan corridor.
The entire project was by EMS, and contractors were local, Serbian companies.
The Transbalkan corridor will consist of the transmission lines between Romania, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Italy. The transmission lines are routed from Resita in Romania to Pančevo, Obrenovac and Bajina Basta, then to Pljevlja in Montenegro and Lastva, and undersea cable will connect to Vilanova in Italy.
In Serbia, one section of the corridor will lead to Kragujevac and Kraljevo, and part of it will run to Visegrad in BiH (Republika Srpska).
In July 2017, ELEM & ELGO signed a contract for implementation of 13 training courses in Iraqi Kurdistan, referring to different transmission and distribution topics, including design of transmission facilities, construction, maintenance, standards, software, etc. The contract is signed with the German company Luthardt (main contractor) and the Client is Ministry of Economy of Kurdistan Region (Iraq).

E&E signed a contract for project management consultancy services for 110kV grid connection of Wind Farm Alibunar. The wind farm project is one of the first wind energy projects in Serbia to reach the implementation phase and is developed by the Belgian company Elicio NV, through its local company Electrawinds S d.o.o. When constructed, the wind farm will consist of 21 units, with total installed capacity of 48MW. The grid connection project consists of a 110kV switchyard and 110kV OHL. The line will connect to the existing 110kV OHL no. 151/2 SS Pančevo 2 – SS Alibunar.
The selected contractor for the subject project component is consortium of Elektroizgradnja d.o.o. and Elektroistok Izgradnja d.o.o. The E&E team to manage and support the project implementation consists of our best experts in areas of project management, design review, supervision and testing and commissioning, for both switchyard and OHL part.
We hope to be a part of a very successful project and, together with the Client, project Beneficiary (Elektromreža Srbije JSC) and Contractor, contribute to efficient implementation.
In the end of 2016, an important change in the management structure within ELEM & ELGO d.o.o. (E&E) was implemented.
Miloš Golubović is the new General Manager of E&E.
Also, our colleagues with rich experience in working at E&E, were appointed as Assistant Managers:
– Ivica Bačvanski, Dip.Eng.El. (Technical issues) and
– Slavica Šećković, M.Sc.Econ. (Finance and Administration).
Ljubiša Golubović (former General Manager) and Mirjana Golubovic (former Deputy Manager for Finance and Administration) will continue to work at E&E as senior advisors.
