British team set to win Kosovo power contract

A BRITISH team led by Mott MacDonald is poised to pick up the £1.4M contract to manage the repair of Kosovo's power generation and distribution system.

The team, which includes specialists from Taylor Woodrow, Scottish & Southern Energy, Powergen and the National Grid, is expected to sign a contract with the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Pristina later this week. It will oversee local and international contractors working to repair the bomb damaged and neglected system throughout the winter.

Government trade promotion body British Trade International is providing half the funding towards the scheme. The remaining £700,000 will come from the European Union.

Trade minister Richard Caborn said UK Government money would help British companies win contracts in Kosovo 'worth between £10M and £20M' during the next one or two years. He added: 'This will be from work arising out of the concession directly related to the rehabilitation of power stations, substations and transmission lines.'
