The German Wpd company, which produces electricity from renewables, has won a tender for the construction of two wind farms in Glamoc and Bosansko Grahovo municipalities in the southwest of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with a total installed capacity of 264 megawatts.
Cantonal authorities adopted a decision to grant a concession to Vjetroelektrane Dah Planine d.o.o. Mostar company, that was founded by Wpd Europe GmbH, for the construction of the Cadilj wind park in the municipality of Glamoc.
The project envisages the construction of a wind farm with an installed capacity of 138 MW. Wpd was granted a concession for the construction of the Marino Brdo wind farm in Bosansko Grahovo municipality, with a total installed capacity of 126 MW.
Wpd plans to build a total of four wind farms in the area, officially Canton 10. Earlier, the authorities presented plans for the construction of the Kruzi and Vaganj wind farms in the Livno area with a total installed capacity of 810 MW.
Two wind farms for the production of electricity have already been built in the canton.
The plan is to build several private wind farms, and the China National Technical Import & Export Corporation has started the construction of one of them at Ivovik near Livno, with a total value of €130 million.
According to research, that area has the greatest potential for the construction of wind farms in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Based on a study by the International Renewable Energy Agency, the profit potential for the construction of wind farms is 10,619 MW, and the potential production is 22,893 GWh.
For comparison's sake, BiH's entire electricity consumption in 2020 amounted to slightly more than 12,000 GWh.
