Biomass Heating Supply and Old Facilities Renovation


Energy sector – renewable energy (pellet and woodchips)
Construction sector – (heating / windows / insulation)


The firm will be headquartered in the Aleksandrovac industrial zone, Municipality of Laktaši. The location is in the northern part of the RS/BiH, only 25 km from the border with  Croatia and the EU, 2 km from the new A1 motorway, 25 km from the main administrative centre of the Republic of Srpska – Banja Luka, and only a few kilometres from Mahovljani airport.
A small office to cover the FBiH, i.e. Herzegovina will be located in Istočno Sarajevo, where proximity of an international airport and connection to the A1 motorway are an added benefit.


GI d.o.o. is planning to supply heat energy under contracts, including modernization of facilities by installing new biomass-fueled heating systems or boiler rooms, replacing old windows with the new, installing roof and/or building insulation at businesses and public institutions in the RS/BiH territory, starting with smaller projects.
Installing such a heating system is planned in 100 small facilities of total area of about 100,000 m2 and two big projects of total area of about 160,000 m2 within the next two years.
The payback period is 5 to 6 years for the small facilities, and estimated at about 10 to 12 years for the two big projects.
The annual growth is estimated at about 10%, with a positive cash flow after two years of operation.
The heat will be supplied under contracts for a period of 20 to 25 years, and net profits will be generated for 10 to 15 years after the payback.
