Croatia’s Končar-Engineering signed a contract with power company HEP Group for the construction of the small hydropower plant Otočac (SHPP Otočac), which represents additional power capacity and will increase the energy utilisation of the headwater system of the hydropower plant Senj and the Lika river.
The capacity of the power plant will be 1.5 megawatts (MW) and it will consist of three separate generation units with a power of 500 kilowatts (kW) each. This will ensure the supply of electricity to approximately 1,500 households.
Most of the components of this small hydropower plant, such as generators, static converters, control systems, transformers and switchgear, will be manufactured by Končar, while the rest of the equipment will be manufactured by companies operating on the local market.
The value of the contracted work is 90 million kunas (approximately 12 million euros) and the construction will last two years.
