State-owned power utility Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS) has announced a tender for the construction of the Petka solar power plant with a capacity of 9.95 megawatts (MW).

Elektroprivreda Srbije envisages the construction of the Petka solar power plant, with a capacity of 9.95 MW, at the external tailings dump of the Ćirikovac coal mine near the settlement called Petka, according to the tendering documentation.

The Petka solar power plant will be located on the left side of the Požarevac-Kostolac road. The dumpsite where it will be located is 2.2 kilometers long and 1.2 kilometers wide, with a maximum height of 60 meters.

It is a location where EPS dumps tailings that are produced during coal excavation for thermal power plants Kostolac A and B with a total installed capacity of 1,000 MW.

The deadline for submitting bids is February 8, according to the tendering documentation.

Of note, EPS announced the construction of the Petka solar power plant a few years ago. Its expected annual production is 12.9 GWh and it should span over ​​15 hectares.

EPS plans another project in the Kostolac mine – solar power plant Srednje Kostolačko Ostrvo, with a capacity of 97.2 MW.
