Diversion of the Sava River

Diversion of the Sava River

At the HPP Brežice construction yard, the Sava River was diverted to a temporary channel, which was built in the last couple of months. 
The construction of HPP Brežice began in mid-March 2014. The diversion of the Sava marks the beginning of forming a construction pit where the HPP Brežice dam structure will be built in the next two years. October 2014 is the estimated deadline for the completion of preparatory works, which include all ground works and preparing the construction yard. This will conclude the first larger investment of 6.6 mil EUR.
At the moment we are a month ahead of the plans, however, in the following phases we will meet complex terrain work, which will also be influenced by weather conditions and especially by the strong torrent character of the Sava.
