The territory of the Trnovo municipality in East Sarajevo has good hydroelectric potential, so the authorities decided to prepare concessions for small power plants Kijevo 2 and Hrasnica, Bosnian daily paper Oslobođenje said.

Mladenka Rađen from the local urbanistic department said domestic investors have been expressing interest before as well. “First the concession must be awarded, then the procedure starts to obtain construction paperwork and permits and so on, thus we don’t know when construction can start and when everything could be done,” she said. The two small hydropower plants will have concessions for 30 years.

Kijevo 2 will be installed on the river Željeznica in Kijevo village. Estimated capacity of 242 kW will have yearly production of 1.25 GWh. The reservoir dam facility with flow-of-river regime will be worth BAM 1.8 million (EUR 9.2 million) and works include digging the river bed downstream. Hrasnica project will be constructed in Turovi village, where Hrasnica creek flows into Željeznica. Estimated capacity is up to 250 kW, and the plant will generate 1.04 GWh per year. The investment is worth EUR 1.54 million. The intake structure will be upstream, at a height of 1,217 metres, while the machine house will be at 900 metres.
