New daily record of HPP Zvornik

EPS continues to break records in hydro power generation

On 28th April 2023, Zvornik Hydro Power Plant achieved a new absolute record in daily electricity generation of 2.938 MWh. With the best daily result in its 68-year-long history, this hydro power plant on the Drina river beats the previous record achieved on 2nd March 2023 by 15 MWh.

The daily record, the fourth in a row in the previous five months, is the result of the operation of revitalized units. Zvornik HPP was completely revitalized in the period from 2016 to 2020. The capacity of the power was increased by 30 MW and lifetime was extended by an additional 40 years.

In April, Zvornik HPP generated a total of 69,188 MWh of electricity. Thus, thanks to the favorable hydrological situation and the technical availability of units, the monthly plan was exceeded by 15 percent. Previously, in March, Zvornik HPP and Đerdap 2 HPP achieved new daily and monthly records.

With good generation results, Elektroprivreda Srbije continued the trend recorded in the first quarter of 2023, when the total electricity generation reached 9.74 billion KWh. That is 17% higher compared to the first quarter of 2022. Hydro power generation in the period January - March increased by 32% compared to the same period last year. The high level of generation enabled selling surplus electricity on the exchange and open market.
