Construction work on the approach road to the wind farm has already begun. It is expected that 3,000 jobs will be open, the SeeNews portal reported.

“There is a huge potential for the production of electricity for which there is high demand in the neighbouring countries,” Yuksel Guler, Enprode’s president said in the statement, local media reported.

Earlier this year, in August, Elektroprivreda Hrvatske zajednice Herceg Bosne power company announced the construction of the first wind farm in Bosnia and Heryegovina, Mesihovina, that will supply power to the population of the municipality of Tomislavgrad once it is completed and becomes operational.
