ZAGREB (Croatia), October 7 (SeeNews) - Croatian state-owned energy supplier Hrvatska Elektroprivreda (HEP) said it plans to build a 75 MW solar power plant as part of its strategy to increase by 50% the share of renewables in its portfolio by 2030.

The estimated value of the new photovoltaic (PV) plant, SE Korlat, is some 480 million kuna ($70.9 million/64.6 million euro), HEP said in a statement during the weekend without providing a timeframe for the project's implementation.

The PV will be built adjacent to the 58 MW Korlat wind farm, which has been under construction and is expected to be commissioned in August 2020, HEP said.

The company also said that its current PV projects include SE Vis, which is under construction, and SE Cres and SE Vrlika Jug whose construction is expected to start soon.

SE Vis will have 2.2 MW installed capacity, while SE Cres will be of 6.5 MW and SE Vrlika Jug of 2.1 MW, the company said earlier.

According to its renewable energy strategy, HEP plans to raise the share of green energy in its portfolio to 9,000 GWh from the current 6,000 GWh by 2030. It plans to operate 350 MW of solar and the same capacity of wind farms by that time.
