Description

Many reforms have been initiated in the Albanian power sector in recent years. KESH has been partly unbundled recently with the creation of a transmission system operator (OST). The separations of transmission and distribution assets have been completed. However, KESH still owns generation and distribution assets and the extent of internal separation between the activities is not clear so far. The next stage of unbundling should thus lead to complete separation of generation and distribution activities as well.

The International Finance Corporation (IFC) Private Enterprise Partnership for South-east Europe Infrastructure (PEP-SEI) program has been appointed by the Ministry of Economy Trade and Energy (METE) of the Government of Albania (GoA) to act as Lead Advisor in this project. As part of this advisory assignment, IFC wishes to recruit a Technical Consultant to assist the IFC team in all three phases.

The scope of this assignment was the provision of advisory services aiming at accelerating private sector participation in Albania's power sector, particularly in:

  • unbundling of Albanian Electricity Company (KESH) distribution business' assets from other activities and assets of KESH;
  • structuring of a PSP transaction that will be conducive to private sector interest and participation;
  • executing an open, transparent and competitive tender to attract the optimal private partner to operate and develop the entity.

The technical & environmental consultant was responsible for pro-actively identifying and analysing all main technical issues pertinent to the separation of KESH's activities and their organization into independent companies. The consultant also provided the IFC and KESH with all necessary technical input for the establishment of the new proposed company.

The main tasks of the consultant included:

  • Phase I: Restructuring/unbundling of KESH;
  • Phase II: Privatization of distribution activities, including (a) Transaction Structuring & Preparation, (b) Transaction Implementation, and (c) Environmental compliance.
