SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina), December 22 (SeeNews) – Bosnian state-controlled power utility Elektroprivreda BiH [SAJ:JPESR] said it produced 6,913 GWh of electricity this year in 2016 through December 7, up 5.44% on the year and 1.85% above plan.
In 2015, EPBiH produced a total of 6,909 GWh of electricity, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.
Total electricity production in thermal power plants (TPPs) exceeded last year's results by 8.26% in the review period and was 2.38% higher than planned.
EPBiH's Kakanj TPP has seven units with total installed capacity of 450 megawatts and produces an average of 2,300 gigawatt hours a year. It is the smaller one of Elektroprivreda BiH’s two thermal power plants. The bigger one is Tuzla, whose six blocks produce an average of 3,100 gigawatt hours yearly. It has a total installed capacity of 715 megawatts.
TPP Kakanj surpassed its 2015 productions levels by 11.34%, while TPP Tuzla produced 6.5% more electricity than last year.
Due to unfavourable hydrological conditions, in particular in December, the hydroelectric power plants on the Neretva river have produced less electricity than planned this year.
Elektroprivreda BiH operates in the Federation, one of the two entities of postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina. The other one is the Serb Republic.
