Municipal Assembly of Foča, located in the Republic of Srpska in the southeastern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina, adopted a document about establishing a limited liability company (DOO) Energana-Foča in collaboration with Energo Alfa Prague SRO from the Czech Republic. Partners plan to construct a combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Brod na Drini industrial zone, Srpska’s news agency Srna said.

The project will make use of local wood industry’s unfinished pre-war facility of Nova energana, owned by the entity’s government, which signed an agreement last August with the Czech investors. Municipality head Radisav Mašić said the CHP plant may be the solution for the question of district heating for the town. He added it would secure energy for the industrial zone and that part of the generated power would be sold through the national grid. Mašić stated the investment is estimated at EUR 50 million, but that the municipality brings only the building and land into the venture, with the Czech firm having 90% of the assets.

The power plant’s boilers are planned to be fuelled with brown coal from nearby Miljevina mine, and wood waste, the mayor said and underscored investing could start early next year and that works should be completed within two years. The small wood processing factory of Maglić also produces pellet, media said.
