Profine Energy working on 550 MW of solar in Serbia and Bosnia
Profine Energy, a subsidiary of Germany’s Profine Group, is working on parallel projects to install grid-connected solar photovoltaic plants with battery storage in Serbia and Bosnia, with capacities of 450 MW and 100 MW respectively, said the group’s owner and CEO, Peter Mrosik.
The ground-mounted solar array in Serbia will be near a planned carbon-free industrial park, to be built on an area of some 800 ha between Belgrade and Novi Sad, for an overall investment of more than EUR 2 billion. The solar park will cover the energy needs of Profine itself and interested companies whose production facilities will be located in the industrial zone. These include an unspecified number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) from the automotive sector.
The energy consumption needs of Profine Group’s 25 production facilities, together with those of its customers, add up to over 2,5 GW per year, according to Mrosik, so more renewable projects will be needed.
