By completing HPP Brežice, the fourth power plant in the chain, the company HESS has successfully continued the construction of hydroelectric power plants on the lower course of the Sava River. Following the successful finalization of construction work, the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning of the Republic of Slovenia issued a decision on 25 September 2017 mandating that the developer HESS keeps the HPP Brežice dam structure under trial operation for a period of one year.

Pursuant to the issued decision, the company HESS launched the one-year trial operation of the dam structure on 10 October 2017.
