Capital Investments

Commitment of JP Elektroprivreda BiH is to construct new hydropower capacities as environmentally friendly facilities. The concept of sustainable development, which the European Union adopted in 1990, meant that Member States committed themselves to achieving a balance between use and protection of natural resources and the environment in general.

In accordance with long-term development plan for power generation facilities, decisions of the FBiH Government and competent institutions to designate public interest and to prepare for construction of new power facilities, JP Elektroprivreda BiH is intensively developing projects for the construction of capital generation facilities.

Priority projects:

Hydro Power Plant

Thermal Power Plant

Wind Power Plant

Hydro Power Plant “Vranduk”

Unit 7 TPP “Tuzla”

Wind farm “Podveležje”

Hydro Power Plant “Ustikolina”

Unit 8 TPP “Kakanj”

 

Hydro Power Plant “Janjići”

 

 

Hydro Power Plant “Kovanići”

 

 

Hydro Power Plant “Čaplje”

 

 

Hydro Power Plant “Una Kostela-reconstruction and expansion”

 

 

Hydro Power Plant “Babino Selo

 

 

Small hydro power plant “Kakanj” at the water intake of TPP „Kakanj“

 

 

Hydro Power Plant “Kruševo

 

 

Small Hydro Power Plant on Neretvica

 

 

Strategic and priority objective is the construction of Unit 7 in TPP “Tuzla” and Unit 8 in TPP “Kakanj”. These are replacement projects for existing units that must be stopped because of the expiration of their lifetime and the constraints imposed by the EU regulations for the operation of power plants after the 2017. Construction of replacement thermal power units will also provide for a secure placement of coal and thus survival of the mines.

Commitment of JP Elektroprivreda BiH is to construct new hydropower capacities as environmentally friendly facilities. The concept of sustainable development, which the European Union adopted in 1990, meant that Member States committed themselves to achieving a balance between use and protection of natural resources and the environment in general. At the same time, rapid industrialization and development of society in general require increasing amounts of energy to be provided primarily from renewable sources, which will be the responsibility of Bosnia and Herzegovina on its road towards EU.

Bosnia and Herzegovina ratified the Treaty establishing the Energy Community of South East Europe in 2006. Each Party of this Treaty undertakes to develop a plan for implementation of the Directive 2001/77/EC of the European Parliament and the Council on the promotion of electricity produced from renewable sources. The aim of this Directive is to increase electricity production from renewable energy sources in the internal market.
