State Secretary at the Ministry of Environment and Energy Ante Cikotic met with the representatives of the town of Otocac, research institutions and associations and discussed the continuation of the construction of Kosinj-Senj hydropower system.
On that occasion, the Ministry presented the study containing an analysis of the possible revision of rehabilitation and upgrade of HPP Senj and pumped storage HPP Vinodol, made by the experts of the Institute for electricity and energy in cooperation with external associates. The representatives of Otocac and the Institute consider that the continuation of the project for the construction of Kosinj-Senj hydropower system, namely the second phase of the existing system, which is being developed by state-owned power utility HEP, is not the optimal solution because it will lead to submergence of large areas, thus preventing further development of the entire region.
