North Macedonia debut PV project nears conclusion
North Macedonia's first large photovoltaic plant is nearing the end of its construction phase. The developer Europower Solar has actually virtually finished the 11.7 MW initial phase of the Oslomej solar project, which lies together with a coal-fired power plant in Kichevo. Executives from the European Bank for Reconstruction and also Development, which is financing the project, as well as the national utility ESM recently visited the facility to check the progress of the construction. The future photovoltaic plants to be created to finish the project pipe at the area will certainly be improved a previous coal mine. Europower Solar is part of Turkish group Girisim Elektrik. The project is equipped with 8 Ingeteam solar inverters of 1400kW each. The Oslomej project is a vital milestone for North Macedonia, because it marks "firm dedication" by the nation's government to the energy transition in the direction of a cleaner generation design, as reflected in the energy regulation approved by the government in December 2020, specified Ingeteam.

North Macedonia’s 35 MW solar tender attracts 82 bids
North Macedonia’s economy minister, Kreshnik Bektashi, has announced 82 investors have submitted bids for the construction of two solar projects with a total generation capacity of 35 MW that the ministry tendered in early June. One project, consisting of several plants with a combined capacity of 25 MW, will be deployed in the municipality of Sveti Nikole, in the north of the country, and another 10 MW of capacity will be installed in Makedonski Brod, in central North Macedonia. “To meet the needs of different investors, the building parcels are divided into different sizes, with developers being offered the opportunity to apply for projects with installed capacity of 10 MW, 5 MW, 2 MW and 1 MW,” Bektashi said at a press conference. The selected projects will secure a feed-in premium tariff that tops up the market energy price when required. The premium has been capped at €15/MWh (€0.015/kWh), Bektashi added. He said the results of the tender will be announced 90 days after the opening of bids. In June, the country’s deputy prime minister for economic affairs, Koco Angjushev, revealed another tender for 26 MW of solar on private land would be launched in the following months. The procurement rounds are expected to mobilize investment of €50 million, added the deputy PM. North Macedonia has a 10 MW solar park under development after a tender was held by state owned electric company Elektrani na Makedonija in April. That plant will be built next to the country’s second biggest thermal power plant, which produces around 10% of the country’s electricity. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development agreed to back the solar project with €5.9 million in January.
