The Government of Republika Srpska gave a concession for the construction of the Planik wind farm and solar power plant in Bileća to the company B&B sunce i vjetar from this municipality, which initiated this procedure, Capital portal learns.
The project is worth 240 million KM (about 120 million EUR), and the concession was granted for 27 years.
The power of the solar panels is 80 megawatts and they should produce 106 gigawatt hours of electricity annually.
The wind farm will have an installed capacity of 39.6 megawatts, and the annual production is estimated to be 93.2 gigawatt hours.
For each kilowatt of electricity, the concessionaire will pay Srpska 0.0055 KM. He is also obliged to pay a one-time concession fee, which amounts to a total of about 1.2 million KM, before concluding the contract.
– If the concessionaire does not sign the concession contract within 60 days, he loses all established rights – it is stated in the decision of the Government of Srpska.
