WV International Emergy has completed the first phase of development of an 80MW solar farm in Serbia. The company said the Zabalj municipal assembly and public power grid operator Elektromreza Srbije have adopted documents necessary to advance the €55m project. After obtaining all the necessary permits and producing technical documentation, WV International Emergy should start generating electricity and delivering it to the grid in 2025-2026. Zabalj municipal assembly has adopted a decision to produce detailed zoning plans for the construction of the photovoltaic plant and a decision to develop a detailed zoning plan for a 110kV overhead power line that will deliver electricity to the grid.
Elektromreza Srbije has adopted a study on the connection of the plant to the grid, creating the conditions for the further implementation of the project. WV International Emergy country manager for Serbia Neda Lazendic said: “We are very pleased to have made the first successful step in the development of our first photovoltaic power plant in Serbia. “After dealing predominantly with wind power plants over the past years, entering the solar energy segment was a challenge. “However, given that the Republic of Serbia provides a stable framework for investment in green energy and that the adoption of a set of energy laws has reaffirmed its commitment to achieving the goals of the energy transition and the green agenda, our group has decided to continue to invest in Serbia and diversify its portfolio.”
