This is the first high-pressure device in Slovenia with a falling water column of 104.6 m and one of the first hydroelectric power plants in the world with a falling water column above 100 m.

The generation unit is equipped with its original stimulator, a generator of 2 MVA 50 Hz power and 6.6 kV voltage, a flywheel and suitable bearings. The animation shows the generation, transmission and distribution of electric power from the generator to the consumers.
