Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH) largest power utility EPBIH posted a tender on Monday for consultancy services on a 36 MW solar farm project that the utility intends to construct in Podvelezje, near Mostar.

According to the tender documentation, which was published on the website of Germany’s KfW Development Bank, the solar farm will be built on the Podvelezje plateau, at an altitude of 700 to 800 meters, near the existing 48 MW Podvelezje wind farm, which has been operational since March.

The plant will provide around 8 MW of capacity to the regional distribution network and 28 MW to BiH’s national transmission grid.

The chosen consultant will have to review all existing studies and surveys, prepare a technical feasibility study, review the plant’s preliminary design and conduct a cost-benefit analysis.

The deadline for submitting bids is 25 November.

The whole project, whose value is estimated at EUR 76m, will mainly be financed through a EUR 65m loan provided by KfW.

In September, EPBiH said it intended to install 200 MW of solar capacity by 2025.

Also noteworthy is the fact that EPBiH said in May that it planned to become the first company in BiH to introduce an internal carbon tax.

However, despite solar power’s potential to drastically lower electricity bills, its use in BiH is still almost entirely untapped.
