According to applications submitted to the Ministry of Economic and Sustainable Development, three Croatian companies have asked for permits for four solar photovoltaic plants with a total installed capacity of 174 MW.

Neoen Renewables Croatia, Krš, and Vidukin Gaj sent requests to the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development to evaluate the need for an environmental impact assessment.

Their applications were submitted in February, along with a few others for facilities with lower capacity.

A few days ago, the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development said another auction would be held for large projects, primarily solar power plants, and wind farms.

All three facilities are planned to be built in Zadar County

Local firm Neoen Renewables Croatia plans to install a solar PV plant Vlaka with an installed capacity of 62.5 MW. The facility will span 105 hectares, and the expected production of electricity is 100 GWh per year, the application reads.

The plant will be located in the Pakoštane municipality in Zadar county.

The Bibinje solar PV plant of 60 MW will be located in the same area in Bibinje municipality. Domestic company Krš intends to build the facility on 84 hectares, and the expected average production of electricity is 100 GWh per year.

Domestic firm Vidukin Gaj intends to invest in two solar power plants – Lužine and Rupine, with an installed capacity of 26 MW each.

PV plant Vlaka will have an installed capacity of 62.5 MW, and solar power plant Bibinje is planned to have 60 MW

Both projects are also in Zadar county, in Jasenice municipality. The firm wants to install the PV plants on 38 and 33 hectares, respectively, while the expected output has not been disclosed.

After the ministry receives an application to evaluate the need for an environmental impact assessment, it is obligated to obtain opinions from other institutions and local municipalities and inform the public before it adopts a decision, according to its website.
