Siemens Croatia to build first wind farm in Bosnia

Siemens Croatia and Bosnia's power utility Elektroprivreda HZHB have signed a deal  on the delivery of 22 wind turbines for the future 50.6 megawatt (MW) Mesihovina wind farm, Siemens Croatia reported on Thursday.

The contract will go into effect on 30 April and the installation of the first turbines is scheduled to start in spring 2017. The project is expected to be completed in early 2018, Siemens Croatia said.

Located near the town of Tomislavgrad, the Mesihovina wind farm is aimed at improving the energy mix of the smallest of Bosnia's three state-run power utilities, which relies solely on water to produce electricity.
