June 23, 2021 – Last week, Oikon team members visited the location of the planned wind farm on Bitovnja mountain in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The purpose of the visit was to get acquainted with the location and to determine the birds and bats monitoring area, which is needed for the development of the Pre-feasibility study on the state of the environment.
The main objective of the Pre-feasiblity and Feasibility Study is to examine whether and under what conditions the construction of a wind power plant at the Bitovnja site is justified, based on evaluations and simulations of recorded measurements, available historical data, as well as performed analyses and assessments of technological, economic, social and environmental aspects of a wind power plant construction and operation. The Study will be the basis for the conceptual design preparation and construction of the proposed wind farm.
Oikon’s consortium partners on the project are Ivicom Consulting d.o.o. and GL Garrad Hassan Deutschland GmbH. The client is JP Elektroprivreda BiH d.d. – Sarajevo and KfW is providing the financing of the project.
The location of the planned wind farm site is above 1 600 meters asl and not easily accessible, especially in bad weather conditions.
