These two projects are worth a total of EUR 9 million while the entire investments in the two HPPs are expected to reach EUR 40 million in the next five years.

The overhaul of unit 2 of HPP Piva, worth EUR 2.7 million, has been envisaged for this year and the year of 2019. The overhaul is to extend the unit’s lifespan and to reach its projected performance values.
