As part of the construction of the 110 kV Circuit Line South Albania, two new substations, Orikum 110/35/20 kV and Himare 110/35/20 kv, have been put into operation.
KONČAR – Power Plant and Electric Traction Engineering Inc. (KET) prepared the complete project documentation, organized the construction and equipment assembly and testing, as well as the commissioning of the facilities.
Nearly 90 percent of the equipment for the two substations was manufactured by companies from the KONČAR Group.

With the construction of these two new facilities, the Albanian distribution system operator OSHEE has strengthened the power grid of this important tourist region.
