Bosnia’s EPBiH obtains energy permit for construction of 48 MW Podvelezje wind park

, News

The energy ministry of Bosnia’s Muslim-Croat Federation has issued state-owned power utility Elektroprivreda BiH an energy permit for the construction of the 48 MW Podvelezje wind park with a planned annual production of 115-119 GWh, EPBiH said.

The energy permit is valid until May 24, 2019 and allows EPBiH to sell all produced electricity at guaranteed prices or reference prices fixed by the entity’s law on the use of renewable energy sources, the power utility said in a statement earlier this week.

The permit is a mandatory prerequisite for obtaining the status of a qualified and privileged producer.

In May, EPBiH said it has signed with the economy minister of the Herzegovina-Neretva Canton an annex to a concession agreement extending the deadline for the completion of the Podvelezje wind park project until December 31, 2018.

The park, to be located in Mostar, will consist of 15 wind turbines for whose supply EPBiH launched a tender in late May.

The project is worth an estimated 162 million euro. Germany’s KfW has approved a 65 million euro loan for its implementation.

The municipality of Mostar is located in Bosnia’s Muslim-Croat Federation, one of the two autonomous entities that form Bosnia. The other is the Serb Republic.
