Dobšiná

PVE Dobšiná

Slovakia's first larger pumped storage power plant, the Dobšiná power plant has been operated since 1953. Following its reconstruction in 2003, its power has increased to 2 x 12 MW. It has a horizontal layout - at one axis it has in the middle a motor-generator and on the one side a Francis turbine and on the other a high-pressure pump. It is also interesting in that it moves water from the Hnilec catchment to the Slaná catchment area.
