The HPP Kolin is quite unique power plant considering its location inside the road bridge structure spanning on the Elbe River in downtown city of Kolin, the central Czech Republic.
The plant is obsolete and the owner seeks uprating, complexrehabilitation and moderni-zation of the facility. The conditions, due to the plant location and very low head (less than 2.5 m) are especially difficult.
Hydropol carried out complex site survey, gathered all necessary data and elaborated complete feasibility study.
The study outcome is a proposal for substantial uprating of the site which shall take place in 2010/2011.
