The reconstruction of the Hydroelectric Power Plant in Gibárt has begun


The Hydroelectric Power Plant operated by ALTEO was temporarily shut down, allowing the company to begin reconstruction of the facility, which has been in operation since 1903, for long-term sustainable and safe operation. The historic generator and turbine have not undergone major refurbishments in the last 48 years, but the EUR 3,2 million investment has the potential to extend the plant’s lifespan by approximately 70 years with a 70 percent increase in power. Following the construction, the plant is expected to be technically completed in the second half of 2020, after which the old turbines removed from the power plant will be available for public viewing.
