Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection said an environmental impact assessment study is necessary for the project of future small hydropower plant (SHPP) Devići 1. The facility is planned to be constructed in nature park Golija in Serbia’s west. Two units will have an overall capacity of 1.25 MW and the developer is Hydro Energy Braduljica DOO, registered in the town of Ivanjica.

The ministry also concluded the process of public consultation and presentation of the environmental impact assessment study for the reconstruction of SHPP Pod gradom on Đetinja river in Užice municipality, also in the west part of the country. The document had been filed for approval by the Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS), the plant’s operator. The 300 kW power facility was launched in 1900 as the first in Serbia to apply Nikola Tesla’s alternating current technology. It has two Francis turbines of 50 horse powers each with three-phase generators of 32.8 kVA, and later a 90 kW unit was installed. The study was done by Energoprojekt-Hidroinženjering AD.
