Project description

National Energy Resources JSC Skopje is seeking financing  to construct three underground gas pipeline sections (“the Project”) in North Macedonia:

  • a 67-km North Macedonian section of the Greece-North Macedonia Interconnector
  • a 28-km Sveti Nikole-Veles Section, and
  • a ca. 35-km Gostivar-Kicevo Section (uncommitted tranche).

The Project will:

  • Assist to improve regional air quality by diverting energy generation towards cleaner fuels in populated industrial areas of the country;
  • Support the country’s energy efficiency measures through reduced energy loss for heating; and
  • Contribute to North Macedonia energy security by enabling a more sustainable energy mix and by developing its gas infrastructure.

EBRD will consider the Interconnector and Sveti Nikole-Veles Sections for financing following expiry of the 120-day disclosure period. The Gostivar-Kicevo Section will be considered for financing by the EBRD only once its E&S documents have been prepared and disclosed for 120 days at a later stage.
