Bosnia's top power utility Elektroprivreda BiH (EPBiH) is to invite bidders to participate in the construction of two new coal fired plant units.
The new plants will generate a combined capacity of 750 MW.
The construction cost for the 450 MW unit at the Tuzla plant and another 300 MW unit at Kakanj plant is estimated at $1.66bn.
The two coal fired power plants currently have a combined capacity of 1165 MW and output of around 6000 GWh a year.
Reuters reports that the new facility will help extend the unit's lifespan by another 15 years, increase output and reduce emission of harmful gases and put it in line with the European Union environmental standards.
