Serbia's Djerdap hydroelectric power plant on the Danube exceeds planned production by ten percent
From the beginning of the year until July 15, 27 aggregates produced a total of 4,353,842 megawatt hours (MWh)
The Djerdap (Iron Gate) Hydro Power Plant branch has this year produced 401,229 megawatt hours of electricity more than planned for the first seven and a half months of this year.
From the beginning of the year until July 15, 27 aggregates produced a total of 4,353,842 megawatt hours - this is ten percent more than planned.
The largest amount of energy was produced at the HPP Djerdap 1 (3,238,642 MWh) or eight percent more than planned. The second Danube power plant produced 938,928 megawatts of electricity, 11 percent more than planned.
"Due to the good hydrologic situation, HPP Djerdap 2 postponed its overhaul by about a month," the Serbian power company EPS said in its magazine.
Vlasinske HPP plants, meanwhile, had plans to produce 77,258 MWh, but it is reported that they produced 76 percent more electricity.
Stara Mountain, it is added, didn't see much precipitation this year - but HPP Pirot managed to produce 40,408 megawatt hours, or 50 percent more than planned.
"The hydro sector is entering a period of minor inflows, which will be used for planned repairs. In the Danube basin, there are a lot of classic short-term summer rains, and the turbines of the HPP Djerdap branch are ready to receive this water at any moment," EPS said.
The plan for this year, they say, is for HPP Djerdap to generate a total of 6,379,000 megawatt hours of electricity.
