Czech Republic - reconstruction of the original HPP from 1922.


Project review

This power plant, built in 1920, utilizes low head on medium capacity river. It is a specific plant built during the river regulation period.

The plant has been exposed to a long operation without any significant modifications, thus became very obsolete. Low efficiency, combined with large number of staff necessary to its operation, led to poor financial results.
