Ladies and Gentleman,

Every hydroelectric power station is a unique system that is tailored to the specific location. With a long life of hydroelectric power plants of at least 80 years, it is usually necessary to upgrade machines and control devices several times during the lifetime of a plant.

a total capacity of 93 MW, with the expected average annual electricity generation at around 330 GWh. The project would require an investment of EUR 193 million.
