The location for wind park Ljubuša is in the municipality of Tomislavgrad in the Federation in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The cantonal government started the procedure for awarding a concession for the facility, which is envisaged to have 80 MW in capacity.

At the suggestion from the Ministry of Economy of Canton 10, the cantonal government decided to start the procedure of awarding a concession for wind park Ljubuša in Tomislavgrad. Investors interested in building the facility, planned for 80 MW, can secure the contract through a bidding procedure which the said ministry now has the task to organize.

Kamen-Dent from Mostar intends to build nearby wind power plants Pakline 1 and 2, with 48 MW each, though there have been no updates on the projects for two years now. The firm was earlier identified as the investor in the Ljubuša wind park, envisaged for 144 MW, as well as for the Pakline-Ljubuša project of 260 MW in total.

The cantonal government didn’t reveal whether the procedure for the Ljubuša wind park, named after a local mountain, was launched at the initiative of any company.

The municipality of Tomislavgrad in the southwest of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina has distinguished itself as a wind power hub of regional significance. The latest project making headway was launched by Concordia. The firm based in the same town, formerly known as Duvno, received a 30-year concession for its Galečić wind farm project of 29.9 MW.

The Federation of BiH is one of the two entities making up Bosnia and Herzegovina. The other one is the Republic of Srpska. Canton 10 is called Herzeg-Bosnia Canton by the local authorities even though the name was declared unconstitutional two and a half decades ago. It is also known as Livno Canton.

The Ivovik project in Livno and Tomislavgrad is under construction

The first wind power plants in Bosnia and Herzegovina – Mesihovina and Jelovača – are both in Tomislavgrad, which is in the Herzegovina region. Podveležje, near Mostar, is the third and last one that was put into operation.

The construction of the Ivovik wind park, located in the municipalities of Livno and Tomislavgrad, started in December.

Winter Wind, a subsidiary of domestic aluminum manufacturer Feal, was licensed late last year for international trade in electricity. The firm is also a power supplier. It recently took over the concession agreement for the Tušnica wind park project of 72.6 MW in Tomislavgrad from its affiliate F.L. Wind, which built Jelovača.

Lager from nearby Posušje plans to install a 72.6 MW wind farm called Gradina near Tomislavgrad. Locations for wind power projects Pakline 1, Pakline 2 and Baljci are in the same area.

The municipality also has locations for wind power plants Srđani and Mokronoge.
