The “EU Support to Strengthening Integrated Border Management in Ukraine – Resilience” project funded by the European Union and implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) assisted in the maintenance of 15 industrial-type diesel generators. The generators were purchased and handed over by ICMPD to meet the needs of the State Customs Service of Ukraine back in 2022.
These diesel generators are installed and operational in 11 regions of Ukraine. They ensure round-the-clock power supply and enable the State Customs Service of Ukraine and its information systems to function without interruption. The generators are specifically deployed in the areas of operation of 12 regional customs offices and customs posts, including at automobile checkpoints along the Ukraine-EU border.
Providing timely maintenance for the power-generating equipment guarantees continuous and reliable use of the units, but also keeps up with warranty requirements. At the end of the day, this allows for the smooth operation of export and import across the border and contributes to the overall development of the Ukrainian economy.
Background information: The project “EU Support to Strengthening Integrated Border Management in Ukraine – Resilience (EU4IBM-Resilience)” is funded by the European Union, and implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development. The project aims at building the resilience of the Ukrainian border management agencies during wartime, as well as at supporting further reforms to approximate the border management system of Ukraine to the EU standards in line with the Integrated Border Management Strategy of Ukraine. The project runs from December 2022 until May 2024
