Czech Republic - rehabilition of the original HPP from 1917. This plant is under Cultural Heritage protection.


Project review

The HPP Veseli is highly interesting power plant, both from historical and site potential point of view. It consists of two plants built on an island, each having its own inlet and outlet channel. The facility dates back to 1915 and was very outdated at the time of the rehabilitation. The installation utilised only a small part of the river site (only up to 30%) which provided an interesting opportunity for uprating.

The plant is under Cultural Heritage protection, which brought further rehabilitation difficulties.
