Profile hydrological properties from original documentation

Basic profile hydrological properties (as given in the original technical documentation) are:

  • Mean discharge: 369 m3/s (at the “Zvornik” HPP profile),
  • Ecological flow:71 m3/s (at the “Zvornik” HPP profile) and
  • Flood discharge referent for design of spillways: 8,000 m3/s (Q0.1).

Dam properties

Basic dam properties are:

  • Type: gravity, concrete,
  • Crest elevation: 137.5 m.a.s.l.,
  • Height: 38 m (construction height),
  • Length along the crest: 282 m (approximate),
  • Storage evacuation structures: gated spillway, 8 fields and
  • Total evacuation capacity: 8,000 m3/s.

Storage properties

Basic storage properties are:

  • Regular water level: 135.0 m.a.s.l.,
  • Maximum water level: 135.0 m.a.s.l.,
  • Minimum operating water level: 129.5 m.a.s.l.,
  • Total volume: 49.8 million m3,
  • Storage length: 19.1 km and
  • Surface area: 7.2 km².

Conduit properties

The plant belongs to the non-diversion type.

HPP/Powerhouse properties

Basic HPP/powerhouse properties are:

  • Plant type: non-diversion,
  • Unit type: bulb with horizontal shaft,
  • Number of units: 4,
  • Installed discharge: 800 m3/s,
  • Tailrace water level: 121.00 m.a.s.l.,
  • Gross head: 14.0 m (operating head),
  • Head loss: 0.4 m,
  • Net head: 12.9 m,
  • Installed power: 88.5 MW and
  • Mean annual electricity generation: 376.0 GWh.

Present “Zvornik” HPP installed discharge amounts to 600 m3/s, but it planned to be increased to 800 m3/s, in order to align this part of the HPP cascade regarding discharges. Installed discharge of the “Bajina Bašta ” HPP can be modified during the rehabilitation process and by installation of the fifth unit.
