Background

In November 2011, it was reported that Bosnia's Federation plans to invest 620 million euro ($827 million) in the construction of two thermal power units with a capacity of 215 megawatts (MW) each. It would be built near the Kamengrad coal mine, located near Sanski Most. Construction on the units is planned to be five years.[1]

There were no further developments on the project until September 2017, when it was reported that China Energy Engineering Corp (CEEC) was in talks about investing 1 billion euros (US$1.2 bln) in a 430 MW coal power project in Bosnia, including development of the Kamengrad coal mine in Sanski Most, northeast Bosnia. CEEC was in talks with Bosnian private company Lager, which holds a 30-year concession to operate the Kamengrad coal mine, and talks were reportedly well underway and could soon lead to an agreement. The mine has 115 million tonnes of proven coal reserves and an estimated 400 million tonnes of untapped coal reserves.[2]

In October 2017, China's TEPC Overseas Engineering Company and Bosnian construction material supplier Lager were reportedly set to sign a deal on the construction of the US$614 million plant in November, during the China-Central Eastern European Summit of Leaders in Budapest.[3]

Financing

In November 2017, China Energy Group signed an agreement to provide a loan of US$607.8 million for the construction of the project.[4]
