Deadlines for the first wind power facility in the Republic of Srpska, one of two entities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, have been postponed for many reasons, but local energy minister Petar Đokić said the Trusina project should be complete and connected to the grid in 2017.

The project is funded by Kermas Limited, headed by Darko Končar and based in Britain, according to the schedule set out in the agreement with the government. The minister noted company Eol prvi doo from Nevesinje initiated the development of wind park Trusina, portal Nezavisne.com reported.

The town in the country’s southeast is nearby Trusina. “Only now we reached the phase when I can say how the concessionaire is extremely serious and that it provided convincing evidence in the last several months that it is working on the implementation of the project. And according to the dynamics presented the last time in a meeting, they will complete the facility in 2017,” Đokić said.

Kermas stepped in as Eol’s strategic partner. The venture stated earlier it opted for Vestas’s turbines and that a domestic company would connect the power plant to the grid. The plan includes 17 units with 112-metre rotor diameters at a height of 84 metres. Works at the wind park, located at one thousand metres above sea level, should be launched in March, the article adds.

The holder of the 30-year concession for the construction of a 51 MW wind power plant worth BAM 150 million (EUR 76.6 million), has asked for extensions in the timeframe. Srpska’s energy authorities earlier said 2018 is considered as the most probable completion date for the technical works.
