He added the plan is to finish the 1,200 metres long road towards Varda quarry, from where construction material will come, by the end of July, and the remaining works should be complete by the end of the construction season, portal reported.

Except from the road and the bridge, there is a plan for a power line to the town of Višegrad, and there is an ongoing land expropriation. The maximum power of HPP Mrsovo is 36.8 MW, the company said. And it will be connected to the 110 kV network, determined by the power of the HPP and the vicinity of suitable connection terminals with 110 kV voltage. According to the preliminary design, from the aspect of electrical equipment, a solution with three three-phase synchronous generators has been agreed, as well as additional three step-up transformers. Generators will be driven by three vertical Kaplan turbines, each with a rated capacity of 12.43 MW. The dam will be 20 metres high, and the accumulation lake will be 9.5 kilometres long – it will stretch all the way to the Rudo bridge. The construction will last for three years, and the investment is worth EUR 100 million.
