    Submit application to Kievenergo and await technical conditions

    Agency: Kievenergo

    The customer submits to Kievenergo an application for an electricity connection. Attached to the application the customer has to submit a number of documents: a letter with a company seal requesting the connection, bank details of the applicant, company statute, registration certificate from the tax authorities, registration certificate of the company, certificate stating that the company is included in the national company registry, document stating the appointment of the CEO, property ownership certificate and location plan of the property to be connected. After reviewing the application Kievenergo issues technical conditions. The technical conditions concern only the external connection. In general they may include instructions for construction of a new substation; lining of high-voltage and low-voltage cables; in a case of reconstruction works - participation of the subscriber in the given actions.


    The application for technical conditions is submitted to the Department of Development (департамент перспективного развития) at Kievenergo which is then internally passed on to the Regional Office in the particular area of Kiev where the warehouse is located and the regional office determines the point of connection. Technicians in the Regional offices know the network and the substations in their area very well and usually do not need to visit the site for preparation of technical conditions. At this point the connection contract is concluded which outlines the responsibilities between the customer and the utility.

    Await project design of external connection by private firm and its approval

    Agency: Project design firm

    Once the technical conditions are issued the customer hires a licensed project design company to prepare the electrical project design of the external connection. As part of the project design the company prepares a topogeodesic plan (топогеодезическую съемку М 1:500). The topogeodosic plan is prepared to determine the technical aspects of running cable through the landscape.

    While the project is being developed the approval of the location of the substation connection to the network and/or the route of the cable 10 kV and 0.4 kV has to be obtained from Kievenergo and from the Main Architectural Planning Organization. At this point the customer should have an operation permit for the warehouse or Main Plan with the Landscape Allocation Plan. The approvals are obtained by the project design firm.

    Considering the load (140 kW) when receiving an approval of the project of external connection from Kievenergo it is required to attach the project of the internal wiring of the warehouse which at this point should be approved as part of the general architectural design of the warehouse.

    If a substation is required before the project design is submitted for approval to Kievenergo it will have to be approved at the State Energy Inspectorate (Energonadzor/“Dergenergonaglyadu”).
