Mikšová

Mikšová hydroelectric power plant is a channel power plant that had been the country's largest hydroelectric power plant until after the Liptovská Mara pumped storage was built. The right-side slopes were used to build the diversion channel, so only the left-side dam was constructed throughout the length, being as high as 22 metres near the plant.

Thanks to the high head the HPP also has a high installed capacity of 3 x 31.2 = 93.6 MW.
