Local firm Concordia signed a concession contract for its 29.9 MW wind power project Galečić with the Government of Canton 10 in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Tomislavgrad municipality in southwestern BiH has distinguished itself as a wind power hub of regional significance. The latest project making headway was launched by Concordia. The firm based in the same town received a 30-year concession for its Galečić wind farm project of 29.9 MW.

Concordia is obligated to pay an initial fee of EUR 7,260. Canton 10, part of the Federation of BiH entity, said it is also entitled to an annual fee equivalent to 1.75% of the future wind power plant’s gross income.

The firm was founded in 2009. Concordia’s owners are Marija Tatarović and Jozo Stipić. It is registered for electricity production.

The first wind farms in Bosnia and Herzegovina were built in Tomislavgrad

The first wind power plants in Bosnia and Herzegovina – Mesihovina and Jelovača – are both in Tomislavgrad, formerly known as Duvno. Their capacities are 50.6 MW and 36 MW, respectively. Podveležje, near Mostar, is the third and last one that was put into operation.

The construction of the Ivovik wind park, located in the municipalities of Livno and Tomislavgrad, started in December. The facility is planned at 84 MW.

Winter Wind, a subsidiary of domestic aluminum manufacturer Feal, was licensed late last year for international trade in electricity. The firm is also a power supplier. It recently took over the concession agreement for the Tušnica wind park project of 72.6 MW in Tomislavgrad from its affiliate F.L. Wind, which built Jelovača.

Lager from nearby Posušje plans to install a 72.6 MW wind farm called Gradina near Tomislavgrad. Locations for wind power projects Pakline 1, Pakline 2 and Baljci are in the same area.

As for the rest of the country, another wind power plant is being built near Sarajevo. Initial works on the Grebak wind farm, in the Republic of Srpska, BiH’s other entity, began almost two years ago.
