After commissioning its first facility in Croatia in January, German company DIVE Turbinen GmbH & Co. KG announced that it will install one more mini hydropower plant by the end of the year, and another one in the same market in 2016.

The first project was built on river Kupčina in the community of Draganić in the central part of the country, the press release adds. The turbine of 105 kW of installed power is located at the old mill.

DIVE-Turbine unit is compact and the direct connection between the generator and rotor enables operation without transmission. The entire system is submerged in water and needs no housing, which lowers the cost, the company said. The number of rounds per unit of time varies, therefore inverters are installed between the generator and the grid.

Adjacent equipment is placed in a container cabin. DIVE Turbinen supplied all other hydromechanical gear.

The second mini hydropower plant will be installed in nearby Sunja. Its capacity will be 130 kW. The company announced another project for next year in Croatia, where the installed power will be 280 kW.
