The subsidiary of a Danish-based company requested another environmental permit after revising the project for a wind power plant near Sarajevo. Suzlon said the Ivan Sedlo facility would consist of five instead of 12 units.

The Ministry of Environment and Tourism of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina said Suzlon Wind Energy BH filed a request for an environmental permit for the planned Ivan Sedlo wind power plant. Interested parties can send suggestions by August 25.

Power plant to take up less space 

The plan was for 12 turbines and the firm obtained an environmental permit two years ago, but now it revised it to five units, which would be purchased from Siemens Gamesa. It means the affected area in the municipality of Hadžići will be smaller, according to the subsidiary of Denmark-based Suzlon Wind Energy.

Suzlon revealed annual output is projected at 78.3 GWh

It revealed the planned capacity for the facility southwest of Sarajevo remains at 25 MW. The firm expressed interest in the project all the way back in 2008. In the meantime, it scrapped the version with 22 turbines, and subsequently also the possibility to build 19 turbines with an overall 39.9 MW.

The Sarajevo Canton signed a 30-year concession agreement with Suzlon in May 2018. At the time, local authorities estimated the investment at EUR 30 million. Test results have shown an average wind speed of 7.7 meters per second at the Ivan sedlo mountain pass.

Turbines at elevations of as much as 1,526 meters

The aggregates will be at least 300 meters apart, the company said in its statement on the measures to lower the impact on the local flora and fauna. The units would be installed at between 1,172 and 1,526 meters above sea level, according to the documentation.

Siemens Gamesa’s SG 5.0-145 turbines will be on 102.5-meter high towers and the diameter will be 145 meters, Suzlon said and added annual production would be 78.3 GWh. The nearest villages are Mrkajići, Vukovići and Bradina.
