During his tour of the village of Seniste, Vučić said that there is no greater energy interest for Serbia than that hydroelectric power plant and that Serbia must have enough electricity to sell it by 2028.
“If you people do not protest, that is our number one project and that is salvation for our country,” Vucic told the residents of Seniste, with which those gathered agreed.
He stated that Serbia cannot survive without a reversible hydroelectric power plant in Bistrica, because more and more electricity is being consumed, and 50 percent on industry.
“We cannot put in new capacities without that, without those 650 megawatts of reversibility,” Vucic said.
Acting director of the Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS), Milorad Grcic, said that it would be “realistic” for the hydroelectric power plant to be on the network in 2025.
Vučić stated that the hydroelectric power plant will “raise” the whole area, adding that it is a huge amount of money and investment.
The reversible hydroelectric power plant Bistrica has been planned since the 80s of the last century, and the government announces that this hydroelectric power plant, in addition to “Djerdap 3”, will increase the total production of electricity by 15 percent.
