The agreement was signed by Elvedin Grabovica, Director General of Elektroprivreda BiH, Senad Sarajliæ Executive Director for the Production at the TPP Kakanj and representatives of the Consortium Hammon GmbH – Claus Brinkmann and Dario Å koro.

The investment value for EP BiH is 6.6 million Euros. During the reconstruction of the existing electrostatic filter a baggy filter will also be upgraded. The combination of electrostatic precipitators and bag filters is called hybrid filter that will increase efficiency and reduce dust emissions from the current average of 200 mg/Nm3 to 20 mg/Nm3 which is in line with EU standards.

Director EPBIH Elvedin Grabovica spoke about the importance of the project to the local community and stressed the importance of investing not only in new capital projects but also in existing ones.

“In the past three years in the rehabilitation and upgrading of existing facilities work we have invested about 560 million KM. Thanks to continuous investment in power facilities, our power system is stable and in exceptional circumstances and we had no major problems in the supply of electricity to consumers. We use this opportunity to thank the employees of the distribution companies and the entire EP BiH to full engagement”, said General Manager of JP EPBIH.

Speaking about the importance of the project for reconstruction of electrostatic precipitators for the local community, Grabovica emphasized corporate social responsibility of EP BiH “where the goal is not only to make profit but also to protect the environment and community development”.

“The reconstruction of electrostatic precipitators will be done concurrently with the capital overhaul of Block 7, which has been in operation since 1988”, said Hasan Causevic, Director of TPP Kakanj.

“The priority goals of reconstruction are to increase the efficiency of electrostatic precipitators which will result in reduced emissions of dust and replacement of worn-out fan flue gas. The reconstruction will create preconditions for the implementation of the depressurization project”, said Mr. Causevic.

About 70 percent of this agreement will be realized by domestic companies that will work on the reconstruction within the Consortium “Hamon” GmbH.
