Contract amounts over 1.2 million leva. It includes rehabilitation of 4
rectifier stations, and was awarded after procurement procedure.
‘For us this is an important project within the town of Stara Zagora.
So far our largest orders in the power construction sector have been awarded
mainly by foreign companies. Complexity of the order does not embarrass us at
all but we have to pay attention to the time schedules, and not to allow
interference of transport service in town. We choose equipment by Siemens
because their switchgears are most reliable’, explained Niagol
Hristov, the General Manager of EL KONTROL upon signing the contract.
Financing of the project is under contract of Stara Zagora
Municipality for Project BG161PO001/1.5-03/2011/003 for ‘Modernization and
development of sustainable public transport in the town of Stara Zagora’,
Grant Nr. BG161PO001/1.5-03/2011 ‘Support for integrated public transport in the
five biggest towns’ of the Operative program ‘Regional development 2007 – 2013’.
Project is funded by the European Fund for Regional Development.
