Livno-based Wild Wind intends to install 12 turbines in nearby Glamoč on the Bundina kosa mountain. The wind power project from more than a decade ago would have a connection capacity of 80 MW.
Ten years after signing the concession with Canton 10 for its wind power project, Wild Wind filed a request in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina for a preliminary environmental impact assessment. The planned connection capacity is 80 MW and the facility would consist of 12 generators, according to the document, which is currently under public review.
The firm revealed it may order Siemens Gamesa’s SG 6.6-155 machines of 6.6 MW. The location is on the Bundina kosa mountain northwest of Glamoč. Wild Wind is registered in nearby Livno, the seat of the cantonal government. The Federation of BiH is one of the country’s two entities, the other one being the Republic of Srpska.
The turbines are set to be built on rocky terrain so that forest areas are spared
Forest areas were avoided in the development of the project, so all the sites planned for the wind turbines are on rocky terrain, the application reads. The nearest village is 4.5 kilometers away. Wild Wind was founded in 2011 and it is registered as an electricity producer.
The Glamoč municipality in the west of BiH is also set to host wind farms Slovinj, of 138 MW, and Dževa, envisaged at 46 MW. German company wpd received a concession in July from the cantonal authorities for its wind farm project Čadilj in Glamoč, also with a planned capacity of 138 MW.
Tomislavgrad in Canton 10 has established itself as the country’s wind power capital. The first two wind farms were built on its territory, another one is under construction and more projects are underway.
Canton 10 is called Herzeg-Bosnia Canton by the local authorities even though the name was declared unconstitutional two and a half decades ago. It is also known as Livno Canton.
