SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina), September 21 (SeeNews) – Bosnian hydro power plant Salakovac produced 431,119 megawatthours (MWh) of electricity by September 19, above its annual plan for 424,500 MWh, state-owned power utility Elektroprivreda BiH said on Tuesday.
The plant's good performance is due to favourable hydrologic circumstances, as well as the excellent technological state of the production units, Elektroprivreda BiH said in a statement.
Besides Salakovac, Elektroprivreda BiH owns two other big hydropower plants, Grabovica and Jablanica, and eight smaller ones.
The Grabovica and Jablanica plants have so far fulfilled 94% of their annual plans and are expected to exceed them by the middle of October, the statement also said.
Elektroprivreda BiH also operates two thermal power plants, Tuzla and Kakanj.
The power plants controlled by Elektroprivreda BiH have a combined installed capacity of 1,682 megawatts. They generated 6,927 GWh of electricity in 2009, down 1.6% from a year earlier.
The power utility operates in the Muslim-Croat Federation, one of the two autonomous parts of postwar Bosnia. The other is the Serb Republic.
A second power utility, Elektroprivreda HZ Herceg Bosne, operates in the Federation, while Elektroprivreda RS is active in the Serb Republic.
