Bosnia and Herzegovina's Federation (FBiH) entity government has granted consent to the energy ministry to issue an energy permit to the company Imres for the construction of a 125.4 MW wind farm.

The Siroka Draga wind farm will consist of 19 wind turbines with capacity of 6.6 MW each. It will be constructed on the Kamesnica plateau, which extends across the south-western Livno and Tomislavgrad municipalities, the government said in a statement posted on its website on Thursday.

Assessments of wind speed and direction at the site, which began in 2009, have revealed that the location has considerable potential, and the government expects that the wind farm will be able to generate 403 GWh of electricity a year.

The project documentation will now be delivered to the FBiH parliament, as its approval is needed for the construction of any power production facility that has over 30 MW of capacity.

To date, the FBiH energy ministry has granted consent for the grid connection of seven wind farms, which have a combined capacity of 321.4 MW, the government’s statement adds.

Since obtaining consent, three wind farms with a combined capacity of 135 MW, close to 41 MW of solar capacity, and 81.3 MW of small hydropower capacity, have been connected to the grid, the energy ministry said in December.

In December, the FBiH government also endorsed and sent to parliament for approval three new laws which will help align its energy sector to EU directives. The draft electricity legislation regulates policy, streamlines licensing in that sector and improves construction oversight of power generation facilities.
