BELGRADE - The 104.5 MW Kovacica wind power station has acquired the status of a preferential electricity producer as the first fully new power station to be connected to the electricity transmission system in nearly 30 years, the company New Energy Solutions said in a statement Tuesday.

Kovacica, one of the largest wind power stations in Serbia, is now in full operation.

Until now, the Pirot hydro power plant, connected in 1990, was the last fully new power station to join the system.

Development of Kovacica began in 2012.

The project was acquired by the Israeli company Enlight in 2016, and New Energy Solutions was entrusted with management of project development and construction from start to finish.

The 189 mln euro project was funded by a consortium comprised of EBRD, Erste Group and Erste Bank Serbia and is covered by Euler-Hermes ECA.
