According to the officials of the Macedonian power utility ELEM, HPP Spilje produced 109 million kWh of electricity in this period, which is 9 % more than planned, and the plant already realized about 40 % of the annual production plan. HPP Globocica produced 73 million kWh of electricity, which is accordance with this year’s production plan.

These results are achieved mainly due to favorable hydrology in Crni Drim and Radika catchment area and successfully implemented maintenance of equipment at these hydropower plants. Debar and Globocica accumulations currently have water reserve to produce additional 32 and 25 million kWh of electricity respectively. The average water inflow is 54 cubic meters per second.

Last year these two hydropower plants produced a total of 542 million kWh of electricity, which is considered as one of the best production results, transmits Serbia-energy.eu
