Serbian state-owned power utility EPS announced its plans to rehabilitate all ten units at hydropower plant Djerdap 2 in the next ten years, thus extending their operational life and increasing their installed capacity.
Acting Director of EPS Milorad Grcic said at the ceremony marking the 40th anniversary of the start of the construction of HPP Djerdap 2 that the company plans to rehabilitate one unit per year in the next ten years and increase their capacity from 27 to 32 MW. Therefore, the installed capacity of the entire plant will increase by 50 MW in ten years. He noted that this investment is significant because hydropower plants produce “green” energy, are easier to maintain and have lower electricity production cost.
