Bitter cold are not the only cause of shortage of pellet in Bosnia and Herzegovina, explained the company BHS Power Bratunac, one of the largest pellet plant in the Balkans.
– To shortage has occurred mainly due to termination of work of certain section, failure and their lack of preparation. But, of course, also because of the increase in consumption, which is due to the extreme winter 20% higher than normal – says Zdu Sadiki, co-owner of the factory, reports Federal Television.
Also, too many people crossed to the pallet, and the production is small and is difficult to manufacturers to supply the raw material. Sadiki says that in 2016 were sold 20,000 boiler manufacturers from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
– When you connect 2015 , 2016, it is about 600 megawatts of installed energy power, provided, and that converted to pellets is consumption of 180 tons per hour of existing built-boilers – explains Sadiki.
Shortage , he claims, could have been prevented, but for this it needs the cooperation of all producers of pellet.
– The problem is that we are manufacturers of pellet should form an association through which we educate citizens to timely supply with our item and keep the price under control so that dealers cant play with the citizens – said Sadiki.
In the factory state that the work on energy efficiency is also part of the solution to the problem and on that will have to work harder.
Price of pellet from 270 BAM in September rose to more than 500 BAM, and in addition this product is almost impossible to buy. The market also came first quantities of pellet from neighboring Croatian by 70% higher price than the regular.
