Energy group WV International Emergy has completed the first phase of a project to develop an 80 MW solar power plant in the municipality of Žabalj. After obtaining all the necessary permits and producing technical documentation, the company should start generating electricity from solar energy and delivering it to the grid in 2025-2026.

The first phase of a solar project was successfully concluded after the Žabalj municipal assembly and Serbia’s transmission system operator Elektromreža Srbije adopted documents necessary to advance the EUR 55 million project, according to a press release from WV International Emergy.

The Žabalj municipal assembly has adopted a decision to produce detailed zoning plans for the construction of the photovoltaic power plant and a decision to develop a detailed zoning plan for a 110 kV overhead power line that will deliver electricity produced at the power plant to the grid. The location is in northern Serbia, in its Vojvodina province.

Serbia’s transmission system operator EMS adopted a study on the connection of solar power plant in Žabalj to the grid with a future 110 kV overhead line

Elektromreža Srbije (EMS) has adopted a study on the connection of the photovoltaic power plant to the grid, creating the conditions for the further implementation of the project.

After it completes the technical documentation and the necessary permitting procedures, in compliance with the highest environmental protection standards, the company plans to start installing the solar power plant in 2025-2026, with its completion, connection to the grid, and launch of operation also expected in that period.

WV International Emergy is also working on projects for seven wind power plants in Serbia, with a combined capacity of 800 MW

WV International Emergy (formerly WV International NBT), which develops renewable energy projects, mainly wind power plants, has been operating in Serbia since 2012. The group’s overall portfolio comprises seven wind farms under development in Pančevo and Alibunar, in the Banat region of Vojvodina, with a combined installed capacity of 800 MW. The wind power plants are planned to be connected to the grid successively from 2023 to 2026, the company said.

“We are very pleased to have made the first successful step in the development of our first photovoltaic power plant in Serbia. After dealing predominantly with wind power plants over the past years, entering the solar energy segment was a challenge for us. However, given that the Republic of Serbia provides a stable framework for investment in green energy and that the adoption of a set of energy laws has reaffirmed its commitment to achieving the goals of the energy transition and the Green Agenda, our group has decided to continue to invest in Serbia and diversify its portfolio,” said Neda Lazendić, WV International Emergy’s Country Manager for Serbia.
