The Ministry of Industry, Energy, and Mining of Republika Srpska has launched a tender for a concession to build a photovoltaic (PV) power station with an installed capacity of 65 MW, in an investment estimated at about EUR 76.5 million.

The future concessionaire is to pay a one-off concession fee in the amount of BAM 300,000 (around EUR 153,000) plus a concession fee of BAM 0.0055 (EUR 0.0028) per kWh of electricity produced. The concession would be valid for a period of up to 50 years.
Bids are due by July 27.
According to local media, IFS Solar Ljubinje, owned by Turkey’s Capital Group, has initiated the project in the municipality of Ljubinje in the Bosnian Serb entity and is the likely future concessionaire.
Austria’s Schall-Invest has also expressed interest in the project, according to reports.
