Project Description:The Joint Stock Company Kyzylorda Regional Electricity Company ("KREC” or “the Client”) has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) to provide technical assistance to implement the Kyzylorda Electricity Distribution Project.

The EBRD is providing finance to rehabilitate and modernise the low and medium voltage distribution networks in the Oblast (the Project), including the installation of modern electricity meters and automatic control systems, strengthening the capacity and efficiency of transformers, and distribution lines aimed at reducing distribution network losses and increase in energy efficiency.  The expected technical and commercial losses reduction will have significant reduction of related carbon emissions as the power generation sector of Kazakhstan is of high carbon intensity.The Project to be financed by the Bank consists of the following components:

•           Rehabilitation of the 0.4-110 kV low and medium voltage network, including lines and substations, which were originally constructed about forty years ago. Consequently it is a high priority to improve the quality and reliability of electricity supply to the end consumers.

•           Supply and Installation of an automated system for protection of distribution network and substations.

•          Installation of new network meters and SCADA as well as a number of new    consumers “smart meters” and related hardware and software systems. International experience shows that rehabilitating distribution networks and improving metering arrangements is one of the fastest and most cost-effective methods of reducing losses and improving collection rates.  These measures in turn stimulate energy efficiency levels.
