Lager from Posušje in Bosnia and Herzegovina plans to install a 72.6 megawatt (MW) Gradina wind farm near Tomislavgrad. It will be the company’s second wind farm in the region, after 142 MW Krš-Pađene, built not far from Knin in Croatia.
The Gradina wind farm is planned in the area between the settlements of Gornji Brišnik, Kovači, Cebara and Omerovići in the municipality of Tomislavgrad, according to a request for a preliminary environmental impact assessment submitted to the Federal Ministry of Environment and Tourism by firm VE Gradina.
VE Gradina is owned by Croatia’s C.E.M.P. which was founded by construction machinery trader Lager.
The project envisages the installation of 11 wind turbines with an installed capacity of 6.6 MW each
Stakeholders have 30 days to send suggestions to the ministry with regard to the request.
The investor plans the installation of 11 wind turbines with an individual capacity of 6.6 MW each in the first phase, the document reads. Most likely, the wind turbines will be Siemens-Gamesa’s model SG 155-6.6 MW.
The fact that the Gradina wind farm will be built close to the Mesihovina wind farm will produce a cumulative impact regarding light pollution, noise and shadowing, according to the request.
Lager is also developing the Žujino polje project in Croatia
The land on which Gradina will be located is the subject of a concession agreement, and the investor will later submit the concession agreement to the FBiH Ministry of Environment and Tourism.
Of note, Croatian authorities earlier initiated an investigation regarding Krš-Pađene wind farm, which was followed by high-profile arrests.
According to Lager’s website, in addition to the Krš-Pađene and Gradina wind farms, the firm is also developing the Žujino Polje project with a capacity of 80 MW in Croatia.
The goal of the Lager Group is to become a producer of electricity from renewable sources and to produce and deliver equipment for wind power plants in cooperation with the world’s leading producers, as well as to build renewable power plants, according to the website.
