Bosnia:110MEUR wind park Poklecani approved on public hearing, SEE Energy News
Project of the construction of wind farm “Poklecani”, estimates the construction of 36 wind turbines, with a total planned wind power from 72 to 108 MW of installed power, depending on the selected equipment supplier that will offer the equipment in the public tender for delivery of wind turbines. The estimated total investment is 110 million and financing is planned from credit and own funds. Construction completion is planned at the end of 2017, it was said during the public hearing on the project, which “Elektroprivreda HZ HB” held on Monday (23 September 2013) in Posusje.
The citizens, municipal representatives of Posusje, associations and other interested parties, had the opportunity to discuss the presented documents: Assessing the impact on the environment and society for wind power plant “Poklecani”, Public Involvement Plan and Action Plan of resettlement and expropriation made by “WYG International Limited” from England and the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering in Sarajevo.
Otherwise, the study of wind potential at the location of WPP “Poklecani” started in December 2006, by installing metering equipment to measure wind potential. Government of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina made a decision in 2010 on the preparation and construction of WPP “Poklecani” and tasked “Elektroprivreda HZHB” for its implementation.
Nominated energy facilities of “Electric Power Industry HZ HB” were adopted by physical basis of the Spatial Plan of FBiH for the period 2008 -2028, including the WPP “Poklecani.” Location permit has been obtained for setting up the 50 meters tower with the installed monitoring equipment to analyze the parameters of the wind, which are collected since 2010.
Upcoming activities are preparation of documents for obtaining prior water permit, environmental permit, renewal of metering equipment on the existing measuring pillar and installation of additional pillar with equipment for measuring of wind potential, and obtaining other necessary permits and project documentation.
