Serbia: HPP Djerdap 1 marks excellent production results in September, News Serbia Energy
Hydropower plant “Djerdap 1” near Kladovo produced 557 million kilowatt-hours of electricity in September of this year. It is a record production of electricity in the 42 years long history of the plant.
The plan production is thrown over by 120 percent; due to the fact that instead of the planned 253 million kilowatt-hours of electricity was produced 557 million.
Since the beginning of the year the hydropower plant at Kladovo delivered 4.3 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity or 14 percent more than planned for this period of the year to the Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS).
“The timetable for the full year was 4.7 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, and we expect soon to achieve it, so we will surely end up this year with delivered power more than it was planned”, says the director of HPP “Djerdap” Ljubisa .
As he states, the flow is 8,750 cubic meters of water per second and the water is drained from the reservoir through the production of over two spillways.
“Due to the large influx of water, lots of wood comes to the protection grid. We are ready for it, we work all three shifts on clearing the material brought by the Danube”, says Jokic.
The biggest Serbian hydropower plant daily produced 19.5 million kilowatts of electricity. Standard for October was 267 million, which implies an average daily production of about eight million kilowatt-hours of electricity.
