a certain amount of liquid fuel, extra light oil or kerosene, which would be used in case of possible shortages of gas in a short time period.
“There is absolutely no more doubts, we thank the Federal Government for recognizing the value of the project which means so much, especially for citizens of Zenica as well as for the Federation of BIH. For Zenica it represents one extremely profitable plant in the city, which is oriented to the export. consequently, Zenica and Zenica-Doboj Canton will become even stronger, although they are already the biggest exporter in the entity. Naturally, we would offer the electricity first to the State, but having in mind the current situation, I believe we will not have to do so, and therefore, we will be oriented for export” said the first man of KTG Zenica.
CCPP Zenica for the City of Zenica means: income, employment, resolving of a long-lasting problems of central heating systems, improvement of the networks for the heating supply, and on the other hand BH GAS would get the biggest consumer.
