    Presence of RWE in Slovakia

    Basic information about VSE

    Note: Consolidated data stated for VSE Group for 2009

    VSE has tripled its investments since entry of RWE to ensure stability, reliability and quality of the grid

    Development of grid investments

    Additionally, productivity of own construction works increased, and price of materials and supplies decreased due to transparent procurement.

    Period of underinvestment before RWE entry

    Entry of RWE

    Key challenges

    Key achievements

    • Current amount of investments need to be kept to ensure improvement of grid reliability and safety

      • Stable political and regulatory framework as precondition

      • Right incentives – guaranteed return on investment

    • Quality of distribution still behind EU standard

    • Development of the region – e.g. ~ 10ths. new connections every year

    • Higher security of supply, also due to asset optimization, automation and centralization of dispatching

    … significantly supporting development of Eastern Slovakia

    At present, majority of investments have been targeted into grid renewal and connecting customers into the distribution system

    Systematic replacement of obsolete production facilities

    Industrial parks and LV customers

    SEPS and SE, the future decentralized power plants

    Total investments into grid

    Other partners in the market

    Connecting customers


    Renewal of the grid assets was not carried out systematically in the past

    • The systematic maintenance and renewal of grid assets was neglected in the past

    • Systematic replacement since 2003

    • Keeping systematic records of the asset conditions of production facilities, on grounds of which an optimum renewal strategy in the future shall be possible

    • This has been extended by the asset simulations which forecast the behavior of the grid in the ageing process and the process of failures

    • CAPEX in 2010: ~ EUR 25 Mil.

    Despite the economic and financial crisis in 2009, several customers asked for new connections to the grid

    • A new MV connection was provided to 91 large customers – however, a significant slowdown was registered in the development of industrial parks

    • In the LV grid there were created~ 8.700 new connections:

      • 1.480 for business customers

      • 7.230 for households



    Investments into new connections total EUR 14.5 Mil.

    Central Dispatch Centre has launched its operations on November 1, 2009

    • Renewal of obsolete technology

    • At the same time, 5 former dispatch centers have been centralized into one central dispatch with a significant positive impact on operational efficiency

    • Technical interconnection between SCADA, the GIS/NIS and the Grid calculation software

    • Timing: 2006 - 2009

    • Investment: ~ EUR 3.6 Mil.

    A third HV substation has been constructed in Prešov last year

    • The large industrial customer Kronospan, as well as connection of the Industrial Park Grófske have requested the construction of a third electrical HV substation in Prešov

    • Connection to the 110 kV line Bardejov – Prešov I, of 6 km length

    • Timing: 12/2008 – 11/2009

    • Investment: ~ EUR 5.3 Mil.

    Just ongoing construction of the fourth HV substation in Košice ...

    • Increasing requirements for electricity consumption in Košice agglomeration

    • Connection of new electricity sources

    • Securing electricity supply and distribution for the industry park in the area of Pereš - airport

    • Timing: 03/2010 – 07/2011

    • Investment: ~ EUR 6.3 Mil.




    In 2009, the strengthening of the HV corridor „West - East“ Lemešany – Voľa was finished

    Strengthening and complex renewal of the HV corridor Lemešany - Voľa

    TSO/DSO substation Lemešany

    Investments: ~EUR 6.5 Mil.



    Complex and robust modernization of 110kV technology at TSO/DSO substation Lemešany

    • Strategic decision in relation to the decision of decommission (liquidation) of the 220 kV system taken by TSO and supported by the State energy policy

    • Systematic transformation change from 220 kV to 400 / 110kV and modernization of the 110 kV technology, which leads to the increase of distribution reliability and security

    • The biggest and the most significant electrical station in distribution grid in Eastern part of Slovakia

    • Timing: 2006 - 2009

    • Investments: ~ EUR 10 Mil.

    Complex and robust modernization of 110kV technology at TSO/DSO substation Voľa

    • Strategic decision in relation to the decision of decommission (liquidation) of the 220 kV system taken by TSO and State energy policy

    • Fulfill the output requirements for distribution reserved capacity / electricity supply for the new customer SSM (steel mill factory)

    • The reconstruction of the 400 kV system of the TSO requires a complete reconstruction of the 110 kV substation technology

    • Timing: 2009 – 2013

    • Investments: ~ EUR 10 mil.
