As the Serbian-Russian company said in late 2016, all the necessary permits for the construction of the Plandiste wind farm
by the company NIS Energowind have been acquired. NIS Energowind is owned by NIS and private investors in equal shares. The project in question has the capacity of 102 MW and has been estimated to around EUR 160 million.
This project, along with the construction of a thermal power plant and heating plant in Pancevo, has been included in the 2017 business plan of NIS
. The Pancevo project should be completed in two years and have the capacity of 140 MW, and the construction will cost RSD 18 billion.
This thermal power plant will produce electricity for the needs of NIS' refinery and Pancevo's Petrohemija, and will supply the citizens of Pancevo with thermal energy.
That investors see wind power as a good opportunity to earn money is shown by the fact that the list features another two wind farm projects. Belgium's WindVision, which plans to raise two facilities
with around 175 MW in total in Alibunar, placed fourth
Before these two wind farms are raised, WindVision intends to build roads in the territory of the municipality of Alibunar, which will be used to transport the necessary equipment. The municipality of Alibunar therefore reached the decision on giving approval to the investment and construction works on the roads in Alibunar to WindVision in late September 2016.
This project, as many others in this field, has been talked about for years now. WindVision announced back in 2012 that it was planning to raise a wind farm near Alibunar
, and in 2013, the municipality adopted the Detailed Regulation Plan
for this complex, estimated at EUR 290 million at the time.
The first bioenergy power plant placed fifth
, namely, the pellet factory and bio power plant in Boljevac
, in which Bioenergy Point intends to invest EUR 9 million. The company plans to expand its pellet factory with this investment and raise the production from 60,000 to 80,000 tons a year.
Zoran Drakulic, co-owner of Bioenergy Point says that the Boljevac factory will be the largest such facility in the Balkans, whereas the construction of the 2.4 MW thermal power plant will enable the production to be unified, along with a considerable reduction of expenses of the company, which is a big electricity consumer.
Interest in alternative fuels in the local market, especially in cold winters such as this year's, leads to increased interest in investing in RES.
and seventh spot again feature a wind farm and a bio power plant.
The Czech investor Vision Group indents to build a 60 MW wind farm near Zajecar
, worth EUR 100 million. The company, which was founded in 2010 by Czech and Korean partners, specializes in solar technologies, hydrotechnology, wind power and biomass processing facilities, biogas and steam facilities and thermal technologies.
