Bosnian utility to deploy 50 MW of solar on coal waste site
JP Elektroprivreda BiH (EBiH), the public utility of Bosnia-Herzegovina, has signed a 30-year concession agreement with the Ministry of Economy of the Central Bosnia Canton for the construction of two solar power plants with a combined capacity of 50 MW (megawatt), reported the pv-magazine.
The two facilities, Gračanica 1 and Gračanica 2, will be built on a waste dump site of a coal mine in the municipality of Gračanica.
The mine serves the 450-MW Kakanj Thermal Power Plant, which is operated by EBiH. It will invest BAM 60 million (USD 31 million) in the two projects.
The company said it plans to build other PV plants at its Breza, Kakanj and Kreka coal mines and other unspecified locations.
