A devastated resort in Croatia’s northeast is subject to talks about ownership, as Končar Electrical Industry Inc. is open to the possibility to let the Municipality of Brestovac and Požega-Slavonia County manage the facility. Meanwhile on the property, the company’s subsidiary Končar – Renewable Sources reconstructed a 30 year old small hydropower plant that had been destroyed in the nineties during the Yugoslav Wars.
The HRK 1 million (EUR 132,000) investment resulted in the launch of the 30 kW plant on a stream next to a lake in Papuk mountain and, according to Franjo Lucić, member of Croatian Parliament, Končar will use the project as a reference for other miniature hydro facilities.
In other company news, Končar – Power Plant and Electric Traction Engineering Inc. (KET) completed the project of the Production Control Centre of Bihać Electrical Distribution in HPP Una in Bosnia and Herzegovina earlier in July. The project included the replacement of an old Scada system with one made on platform ProzaNet, together with pertaining equipment. Works were carried out both in the centre and on HPP Una, SHPP Bihać and SHPP Krušnica.
