New Transmission Network for Gornje Nedeljice Village by Christmas

Directors of Power Companies in the City of Loznica Region

Within the City of Loznica region, from Gornje Nedeljice to Grnčara, 25 km of overhead transmission lines, power cable and every wooden pole will have been replaced by Christmas, thus solving the long-standing problem with power supply in this area - said Mr. Milorad Grčić, Acting Director of Electric Power Industry of Serbia.

Mr. Grčić emphasized that this was a result of the conversation between the President of the Republic of Serbia, Mr. Aleksandar Vučić, and local population, held on Saturday, December 4th, 2021.

- Two days ago, President Vučić visited Loznica's villages and talked to the people who complained that electricity supply was unstable and that there were frequent cut offs, making their lives hard and difficult for them to perform everyday activities. Our obligation was to solve this problem – said Mr. Grčić to reporters after visiting Gornje Nedeljice Village, where works on the replacement of overhead transmission lines and wooden poles are ongoing.

He explained that the major transmission network was completed in the City of Loznica region, since the company Elektromreža Srbije built 110 kV transformer station and rehabilitated all overhead transmission lines, and now only low-voltage grid is left to be completed.

- In the past five years, Electric Power Industry of Serbia, Elektromreža Srbije and Elektrodistribucija Srbije, i.e. the State, invested about RSD 3.5 billion in the power transmission system of the City of Loznica region. We have now decided to complete until Christmas all overhead transmission lines and replace all wooden poles, of which there are few. We think that January 7th is a reasonable date for the completion of works, and from then on, the region will have no problem with electricity – said Mr. Grčić.   

He added that Elektrodistribucija Srbije would immediately begin the replacement of 25 km overhead transmission line which is the main problem, causing all others.

Along with Mr. Grčić, Ms. Jelena Matejić, Director of Elektromreža Srbije, Mr. Bojan Atlagić, Acting Director of Elektrodistribucija Srbije and Mr. Vidoje Petrović, Mayor of Loznica, visited Gornje Nedeljice Village.
