Finalizing of Construction and Finishing Work at HPP Brežice

The construction of HPP Brežice is in the closing stage, with only minor construction and finishing work still under way, together with finishing work outdoors along the left riverbank.

Generating units 1 and 2 have been provisionally accepted with the reservoir filled to the low-level mark, and generating unit 3 is in 60-day mandatory trial operation, which began on 26 May 2017.

The final acceptance of all three generating units will take place once the reservoir has been filled up to its nominal height and start-up tests have been retaken at the rated capacity.

Currently under way is the process of handing over and accepting of spare parts for hydromechanical, turbine and generator equipment; the building's technical security system has been deployed, and so have the seismic, technical and environmental monitoring systems.

There has been no change to the dates for the technical inspection and start of trial operation of HPP Brežice, which are scheduled for the end of September 2017.
