Construction of an 80 MW solar power plant worth EUR 72,000,000 will soon begin in Ljubinje, which will ensure additional 400,000 BAM annually in the budget of this municipality, said the head of Ljubinje Municipality, Darko Krunic.
He says that the project has been completed and all necessary documentation has been collected, and that the Government of the Republic of Srpska and the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining are waiting to announce the tender for the contractor.
Krunic said that the construction of the solar power plant would start as soon as tender is completed, and the deadline for the completion of the works is two years. The solar power plant will be built at the exit from Ljubinje towards Stolac.
Krunic pointed out that the Austrian company will fully finance the project and that experts from that country have already come to Ljubinje and visited the terrain.
-They are serious investors who do not ask for any incentive from the Government and have secured the sale of electricity they would produce – Krunic said.
