Work processes at HPP Brezice
The Sava River acquired a diversion channel yesterday at the HPP Brežice construction yard. The diversion channel was finished and in the next three years it will serve to channel the river around the construction pit of the future hydro plant. The next week will see the current riverbed completely partitioned off and the continuation of forming the construction pit of the future dam structure.
The diversion channel took two months of digging, in that period 500,000m3 of the total 650,000 m3 (the diversion channel and the construction pit) of material was dug out. The majority of that material will be used to fill up the diversion channel, after the Sava will have been diverted over the reservoir pools.
