Malé Gabčíkovo – S VII

Turbíny VE Gabčíkovo

To make use of the water to provide for supply to the S VII feed channel, a small hydroelectric power plant has been built just in front of the Gabčíkovo stage ship locks, where there are installed two sets featuring a Francis turbine. This small HPP was also included in the original Contract Project of the System of Water Works Gabčíkovo-Nagymaros.

This power plant was operated by Slovenské elektrárne until 10 March 2015, when the operation was taken over by Vodohospodárska výstavba, a 100% state owned Slovak company.
