Serbia prepares for 10 more small hydroelectric projects

KRALJEVO, Serbia 4/16/12 (PennWell) -- Construction of 10 new small hydropower plants along Serbia's Studenica and Ibar rivers will begin this summer, according to a release from the city of Kraljevo.

The run-of-river hydroelectric plants, which will have a total combined capacity of about 1 MW, will be built by Bosnia-based contractor Eling for a cost of approximately US$26.3 million.

Construction permits are expected to be issued soon.

The country announced deals for another set of small hydropower plants in December 2011, and geotechnical work for Serbia's Brodarevo 1 and 2 sites was completed earlier this year.
