Serbian state-owned energy utility EPS has invited bids for the preparation of the investment and technical paperwork to obtain the necessary permits for the construction of a solar park near the central town of Kostolac.
The drafting of the paperwork and subsequent permitting should create all the necessary conditions to raise the installed capacity of the Kostolac Petka solar park to 9.9 MW from the currently planned 5 MW, data from the EPS website indicated.
The bidding deadline is September 30.
In December, local media reported that EPS was in talks with German development bank KfW on wind and solar power plant projects in the Kostolac area.
The total net output capacity of the EPS power generation facilities added up to 7,124 MW at the end of 2014. The group's electricity output fell 14.6% to 31,963 GWh last year.
