The 45 MW HPP Brežice is the fifth in the chain of six hydroelectric
power plants on the lower Sava River. It is a hydroelectric power plant
of the run-of-the-river and reservoir type, with three vertical generating
units with a combined rated discharge of 500 m3/s, five spillways and
an average annual production output of 161 GWh.
HPP Brežice will make up roughly one percent of Slovenia’s present annual electricity production and will also provide peak-load power and open up possibilities for selling ancillary services. This power plant is going to be fully automated, unmanned and remotely operated from the control centre.
