The value of the project located in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s south amounts to BAM 127 million (EUR 64.9 million), the entity’s government said. Đokić said the Hrgud facility will have installed capacity of 48 MW with 16 turbines.

He added it would be financed by German development bank KfW with a EUR 60 million loan, while ERS would provide EUR 4.28 million for implementation. The government completed the negotiating procedure and awarded the concession to ERS, the minister stated.
