The 39 MW HPP Krško is the fourth 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 140 GWh.

HPP Krško accounts for roughly one percent of the present annual electricity production in Slovenia, but 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.
