Current status: The feasibility study (FS) was developed and approved by GosEx-pertiza (opinion No. 01-0006/19 dated 04 January 2019).
The Board of Directors of KEGOC approved project performance indicators in the feasibility study (Minutes No. 2 dated 28 February 2019).
In 2019, 11 contracts were concluded for design and survey of overhead transmis-sion lines and substations with design institutes: Eshimkulov NT individual entre-preneur; MangistauEnergoMontazhNaladka LLP; SIT-Stroy LLP.
During the reporting period, design estimates were developed for:
- 5 of 6 SSs and have been uploaded to the examination authority portal for carry-ing out a comprehensive non-departmental examination of the design estimates;
- 2 overhead lines out of 5 overhead lines and have been uploaded to the examina-tion authority portal for conducting a comprehensive non-departmental examination of of the design estimates. For the remaining projects it is planned that the designs will be sent for examination in November this year.
