Energotehnika Južna Bačka took over the majority package of shares of Elektromontaža Kraljevo last year, thereby creating the conditions for a bolder and more aggressive approach to the market beyond the borders of Serbia, both in the region and across the EU
At this Kraljevo-based company they are proud of all of their projects, and particularly the recently completed electrification and management of the Lipak and Železnik tunnels on the Belgrade Bypass, as well as the adaptation of the power supply and control system at the HPP Đerdap 1 shipping locks…
You took over the position of CEO of Elektromontaža in January this year. Where and in which areas do you see the company’s greatest development potential at the moment?
At the end of last year, Elektromontaža became part of the Maneks group, which also includes Energotehnika Južna Bačka in its composition. This group thereby became the absolute leader in the field of electricity in Serbia and one of the leaders of the region. The greatest development potential at present is reflected in this acquisition, because by complementing each other, with both the human and technical resources of the two companies, we have strengthened the ambition to make a bolder and more aggressive approach to the market beyond the borders of Serbia, both in the region and across the EU.
Elektromontaža is included in the largest current projects in the region. Do you cover all areas?
The company has so far also participated in numerous projects for the construction and reconstruction of electrical power facilities, such as transmission lines and substations with voltage levels of up to 400 kW, hydropower plants, thermal power plants and connecting renewable energy sources (wind farms, solar power plants, small hydropower plants) to the distribution and transmission network. The company is capable of implementing all of these projects according to the turnkey principle.
We cover all areas in the electricity sector for voltage levels from 0.4 to 400 kV, i.e. for all voltage levels used in this part of the world
In addition to that, we also specialise in works related to securing the power supply, control and monitoring of complex industrial and other infrastructure systems. One example of this is the recently completed electrificitation and control of the Lipak and Železnik tunnels on the Belgrade Bypass, then the adaptation of the power supply and control system at the HPP Đerdap 1 shipping locks etc. We can thus say that we cover all areas in the electricity sector for voltage levels from 0.4 to 400 kV, i.e. for all voltage levels that are used in this part of the world.
You have very ambitious plans for the company’s further development. What are you counting on in particular – the expertise and commitment of employees, experience of the most demanding projects or something else?
Elektromontaža and Južna Bačka represent examples of successful privatisation, and given that I actually come from the Južna Bačka system, it is certain that applying this company’s recipe for success will bring additional value. Moreover, Elektromontaža is a company that has existed on the market for 58 years, which has resulted in numerous references in the electricity sector. This many decades of experience also represents the knowledge accumulated in the company, which enables the development of young professionals through new, more challenging projects. By combining the knowhow, experience and dedication of all employees, I’m convinced that we have new and even greater successes ahead of us.
