SUMMARY OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL ISSUES


AEDC s investment plan envisages a number of activities to (i) reconstruct, repair and add new capacity to the fixed assets, such as substations and distribution lines, as well as (ii) upgrade software systems for power accounting and (iii) install modern measuring devices. ADB will ensure that the new environmental and social management system includes appropriate arrangements requiring CAEPCO and AEDC to comply with relevant national laws, ADB s Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) and other social requirements. AEDC and its contractors will comply with the national labor laws and take measures to conform to the internationally recognized core labor standards in compliance with ADB s Social Protection Strategy.

DESCRIPTION
The proposed transaction is to support expansion, augmentation and modernization of AEDC's electricity distribution network in the Akmola province and in a small area within Astana, the nation's capital. AEDC s investment plan from 2013 to 2015 includes rehabilitation and augmentation of 19 substations, 60km of 110kV lines, 142.8km of 10kV lines and 52 km of 0,4kV lines. Further, it will add 1 new substation, 141km of 35kV lines, 114km of 110kV lines and 2 transformers to AEDC s distribution network as well as additional metering devices to improve the automated system for commercial power balancing and settlements.

PROJECT RATIONALE AND LINKAGE TO COUNTRY/REGIONAL STRATEGY


The Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for Kazakhstan 2012 2016 seeks to increase ADB s involvement in the energy sector, with the aim to modernize the country s aging energy infrastructure. It notes specifically that ADB will support replacement of obsolete energy infrastructure and technologies, and upgrade the transmission network, mainly through private sector or sub-sovereign modalities. The project is therefore fully aligned with the CPS. The project is also in line with the Energy Sector Policy (2009) which highlights energy efficiency improvements in transmission and distribution systems. The policy proposes that ADB will continue to support installation of modern transmissions systems to transmit electricity efficiently from generation facilities to consumers, including upgrading of existing systems to reduce technical losses and enable competition when open access is permitted by law.

DEVELOPMENT IMPACT
To promote sustainable economic growth by reducing the risk of power distribution system failure caused by obsolete infrastructure with inadequate maintenance, increasing supply of reliable energy and enhancing access to electricity for households, business and industry. Improved performance of a provincial private sector power utility will act as a showcase for further private sector participation in the sector.

PROJECT OUTCOME
Description of Outcome Progress Towards Outcome

The Project will rehabilitate, augment and expand AEDC's distribution network and system including 2,250 substations, 8,130km of distribution lines, and automated system for commercial power accounting, and measuring devices. Additional power supply is expected through improved distribution infrastructure with additional connection to households and industries while maintaining low technical losses. The Project will achieve the more reliable performance of the power distribution system in the rapidly growing Akmola province and capital region in the north of Kazakhstan, and will prevent network failure caused by obsolete infrastructure with inadequate repair and maintenance.

OUTPUTS AND IMPLEMENTATION PROGRESS
