Bosnia and Herzegovina, Construction of Ivan Sedlo wind farm started

, SEE Energy News

Suzlon Wind Energy BH, a local subsidiary of Danish Suzlon Energy, started the construction of 25 MW wind farm Ivan Sedlo in Hadzici municipality, a project worth 35.8 million euros.

The Government of the Sarajevo Canton said that the wind farm should be commissioned in 18 months. It will generate 70 GWh of electricity per year, which would cover around 6 % of the Canton’s electricity consumption. Suzlon Energy has an option to increase the wind farm’s capacity to 35 MW at the later date.

The start of the construction of the wind farm was initially planned for 2019. However, in early 2021, the Cantonal Government signed an annex to the agreement with Suzlon Wind Energy BH, which envisaged the reduction of wind turbines from twelve to five, keeping the original installed capacity of 25 MW.

In July, The Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) has approved the issuance of energy permit to Suzlon Wind Energy BiH for the construction of Ivan Sedlo wind farm in Hadzici municipality. Ivan Sedlo wind farm will consist of five wind turbines, each with power output of 5 MW.
