EPS (Electric Power Industry of Serbia), state-owned utility, is completing the bidding process for a consultant on a feasibility study and concept design. It is for the Kostolac wind park project in the eponymous municipality of the same name. The area east of capital Belgrade has a thermal power plant, also of the same name, as well as coal reserves.
In December last year, EPS chief executive officer Aleksandar Obradović said the power monopoly was in talks with German KfW Development Bank about Kostolac, to fund a wind park and solar electricity generation projects near the town.
The invitation had been published on April 22 and in the meantime the deadline for submission was extended on two occasions, to June 1.
