The fourth stage of the units overhaul of the 1,026 MW hydro facility Đerdap 1 in eastern Serbia, owned and operated by Electric Power Industry of Serbia EPS, will start on August 3, the plant’s head Ljubiša Jokić said. After A-5 unit was revitalized in late March, the plan was to stop A-1, which has been utilizing Danube’s potential for over four decades, Danas daily paper said on its website. However, the works on Đerdap’s first unit were postponed for objective reasons, Jokić underscored, explaining that the Russian equipment suppliers were late.

A five month overhaul is included in plans, as are control works on hydro unit A-6, revitalized in 2011.
