Financial Reporting Technical Assistance Project

01.02.2009 - 31.12.2015

Despite major reforms by the new EU Member States to their legal
and regulatory frameworks governing corporate sector accounting
and auditing, there is a substantial unfinished institutional
development agenda in the field of financial reporting. The
Financial Reporting Technical Assistance Program provides support
to five national administrations (in Estonia as well as the Czech
Republic, Poland, Latvia, Slovenia) which face capacity
constraints and challenges in fully implementing – both in law
and in practice – the very demanding obligations imposed by the
rapidly-evolving acquis communautaire in this field.

Monitoring and Control System of the Nikola Tesla Thermal Power Plant B

01.07.2008 - 31.12.2017

The project proposed by Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS) consists of the replacement and the upgrading of the monitoring and control system (mcs) of the 'Nikola Tesla B' thermal power plant (TENT B) commissioned in 1985 (Unit B1 1983, Unit B2 1985) and currently producing one fifth of Serbia's energy with 2x620 MW 3 stages steam turbines. The total budget of the project, estimated on the basis of budget offers, is 28.6 MCHF. EPS, the end beneficiary, is prepared to co-finance the project to a level of 63% (18.04 MCHF) of the value of the project- SECO's share is 37% (10.56 MCHF). This costs split results from a preliminarily agreed 50% minimum Serbian contribution, from SECO's budget frame for Serbia and from the project's scope and structure. EPS' financing will be provided from internal funding. EPS's financial projection for the year 2007 shows a loss, but according to the EPS business plan 2006-10, a moderate profit will be made in the coming years. The investment scheduled for TENT B will not affect the sustainability of EPS. SECO's grant contribution to the project is justified for the following reasons: (a) Impact on EPS' investment schedule for energy efficiency and environmental projects. The grant has a clear trigger effect. (b) The grant allows a Swiss technology transfer to EPS in a timely moment. (c) EPS has only limited access to other sources of financing, considering that the project is only marginally economically viable. The project will be implemented under the Agreement of Technical, Financial and Humanitarian Cooperation between Serbia and Switzerland signed on 21.02.2003. It is fully in line with the Cooperation Strategy for Serbia and the Internal Country Strategy Note. A Project Trilateral Agreement (TA) will be concluded between SECO, the Ministry of Energy and Mining and EPS, based on the model of the National Control Center project agreement (project implemented by EPS), which covered the previous infrastructure project in Serbia.
