Turbines producer Litostroj Power has signed a EUR 19 million contract with Slovenia’s power utility Hidroelektrarne na Spodnji Savi (HESS), part of the GEN Group, to supply equipment for future hydropower plant Mokrice.

Litostroj Power, subsidiary of hydropower utility Energy-Pro Group from the Czech Republic, will deliver three horizontal Bulb units with a runner of 4.8 m in diameter as well as all the auxiliary systems, according to the Litostroj website.

HPP Mokrice is the fifth and last hydropower plant in the cascade on the Sava river

HPP Mokrice is the fifth and last hydropower plant in the cascade on the Sava river in Slovenia, just before the border with Croatia. The installed capacity of the entire cascade will be 187 MW, while the capacity of Mokrice itself will be 28 MW.

Total investment in the HPP is estimated at EUR 181 million. The project is on the list of 187 investments that the Government of Slovenia adopted to restart the Slovenian economy after the COVID-19 epidemic.

Pavel Váňa, the Executive Director of Energo-Pro, said Litostroj Power has supplied equipment for all the other projects in the cascade – HPPs Boštanj, Arto-Blanca, Krško, and Brežice.

Litostroj Power has 50 months to finish the job

The project of the new hydropower plant Mokrice was adjusted several times to perfectly meet all the demanding conditions for a fully environmentally friendly operation, without any adverse impact on the ecosystems of the Sava and Krka rivers, he said.

Litostroj Power has 50 months to deliver the equipment including the installation and testing.

The works on the project have started at the hydraulic laboratory of Litostroj Engineering in Blansko, Czech Republic, as the guaranteed performance of the turbines needs to be confirmed by a model test before the works can continue.
