Gas TSO of Ukraine (GTSOU) will receive five automatic gas distribution stations (AGDS) with a capacity of 5,000 m3/h worth UAH 300 million as part of the assistance from the Ukraine Energy Support Fund, established under the Energy Community Secretariat in cooperation with the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, European Union and international donors.
In June 2023, GTSOU signed a contract for the supply, supervision of installation and commissioning of the new equipment with the Polish supplier, the company “cGAS controls Sp. Z o.o.”, which was selected as the result of an independent procurement procedure under the Fund.
AGDSs will help to restore GTS facilities damaged due to the russian federation’s armed aggression, particularly in the east and south of Ukraine. While modern automated equipment from leading European manufacturers will allow the company to operate these facilities more efficiently and safely.
“We are grateful to the Fund for the valuable support in ensuring the uninterrupted operation of the gas transportation system in wartime conditions. The new equipment will help us to restore a steady gas supply for the citizens of the territories affected by hostilities”, – noted GTSOU CEO Dmytro Lyppa.
The Ukraine Energy Support Fund has received contributions from Germany, the UK, European Union, Spain, Iceland, Denmark and private sector contributors. The responsibility of fund management rests with the Energy Community Secretariat, while the services of a procurement agent are furnished by Tetra Tech ES Inc., under the USAID Energy Security Project.
