Bosnia and Herzegovina: EPBiH to build 60 MW solar power plants, SEE Energy News
State-owned power utility EPBiH will build eight solar power plants near Zivinice, a project worth some 43.5 million euros. Solar power plants should be operational by the end of 2024.
Solar power plants will be built at depleted open pit mines at Djurdjevik and Basigovci. Preliminary designs are already completed. The company now prepares to submit documentation for the issuance of an urban planning permit.
The total installed capacity of the eight power plants will be around 60 MW. Produced electricity will be consumed locally. The project is financially supported by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
EPBiH plans to build solar power plants on the ash deposits of several of its coalmines, including Kreka, Breza and Kakanj, and its coal-fired TPP Tuzla by 2030.
