In March 2019 Serbia and Republika Srpska (RS) intend to jointly build the hydropower plant (HPP) Buk Bijela. The installed capacity of more than 180 MW, will equally contribute

to the energy stability of Serbia and the RS. HPP Buk Bijela will be built about 11.6 kilometres upstream from Foča. It is planned to be equipped with three hydro generators with

a total capacity of 93 MW, with the expected average annual electricity generation at around 330 GWh. The project would require an investment of EUR 193 million. Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS) is currently reviewing the project for HPPs Buk Bijela, to be followed by determining the pace of implementation.


At the end of 2017, EP S announced its intention to overhaul 10 units of HPP Đerdap 2 over 10 years, to help ex tend the plant ’s lifespan and boost its capacity by 50 MW. EPS and Siloviye Mashiny are cooperating on the overhaul of HPP Đerdap 1. The overhaul began in 2009. In Jul y 2018, the t wo companies signed a contract on the modernization of the A2 and A3 units in or der to complete the revitalization of the entire HPP in 2021.


EPS (Serbian state-owned power utility) plans the construction of 2 small hydropower plants on existing dams – SHPP Celije and SHP P Rovni. The project is a part of the programme for reconstruction of SHPPs through the loan of EBRD. The programme encompasses the reconstruction of 15 SHP Ps with total installed capacity of 18 MW. The project also includes the supply of electrical and mechanical equipment and their installation. Once the tender documents are signed, the works will be completed within 62 weeks.
