Slovenia: Court denied construction of HPP Mokrice, SEE Energy News
The Slovenian Administrative Court has ruled against the construction of the hydropower plant Mokrice. HPP was planned as the last one in a cascade on the Sava River.
The Slovenian Native Fish Society previously launched legal action against HPP Mokrice construction. It announced that the court ruled in favour of nature and the preservation of the Krka River’s mouth into the Sava River.
HPP Mokrice project envisages that the new 28.05 MW HPP should have a water inflow of 500 cubic meters per second and that its annual electricity generation should amount to 128 GWh.
The estimated cost of the project is around 177 million euros. The construction was supposed to start by the end of 2019. 45 MW HPP Brezice, the fourth of the five planned HPPs in the lower Sava project, was officially commissioned in 2017.
