More information about Hydro Power Plant Dubrovnik

HE Dubrovnik

The hydro power plants in the basin of the Trebišnjica River are situated in two countries, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Dubrovnik power plant is the last step of this hydroelectric system. Dubrovnik uses the waters of the Trebišnjica River from the Bileća reservoir which was created by the construction of the Grančarevo dam. The intake for Dubrovnik was achieved by the construction of the Gorica dam which creates a compensation reservoir. The Gorica dam is situated downstream of the Trebinje hydro power plant, so that the tail water of Trebinje is the head water of Dubrovnik. The power plant was planned to be constructed in two phases: phase one and some facilities of phase two are complete. Total installed capacity of power plant is 216 MW.

3. Visit to Wind power plant Rudine near Ston - (Departure at 11:30 in front of HOTEL LACROMA)

More information about Wind Power Plant Rudine:

Rudine is RP Global’s second wind farm in Croatia. The project has achieved financial closing and started construction in August 2014. The 34.2 MW wind park will be erected on the Adriatic coast near the town of Slano, 32 kilometers northwest from Dubrovnik. It will up Croatia’s supply of wind power by 11 percent, thus further reducing the country’s carbon footprint. RP Global’s partner for the 53 million € project is Adria Wind Power, with financing coming from the IFC and Unicredit Bank Austria.

“Tough legal framework notwithstanding, we meet the highest current environmental standards and – thanks to IFC - are finally starting implementation on this project which has the perfect location for the efficient use of wind as an energy resource.”, states Bojan Reščec, Country Manager of RP Global in Croatia.
