Madunice

VE Madunice

The Madunice hydroelectric power plant is located downstream the Sĺňava reservoir, which was artificially built in the Váh river bottomland. Similar construction conditions prevailed later on in building the Gabčíkovo water work. A major role in building the Madunice water work was played by the protection of spa springs in Piešťany. Curative springs and the formation of curative mud were not put into jeopardy, their even increased, so it was possible to substantially increase the number of annually treated patients. There are three sets having a turbine flow of 92 m3.sec-1 each installed at the Madunice HPP. The discharge channel empties near the town of Hlohovec into the Váh river.
