Canadian firm seeks approval for 32-MW Serbia project

Reservoir Capital Corp., through its subsidiary REV, has submitted an application to the Serbian Ministry of Mining and Energy to build a 32-MW hydropower project in southwestern Serbia.

The Vrutci project would be built on the Djetinja River in the city of Uzice.

The Vrutci Dam and reservoir were built in 1984 to provide water supplies and flood protection for the cities of Uzice and Sevojno, the company said. The arch dam is 77 meters high, 241 meters long and contains about 54 million cubic meters of waters, the company said.

Reservoir Capital said it has “enjoyed strong support from local leaders in industry and government regarding this project.”

The company is pursuing two other hydropower projects in southwestern Serbia with a combined capacity of 48 MW. (HydroWorld 5/27/09) Pre-feasibility studies on both projects – the Brodarevo 1 and 2 – are being performed by Energoprojekt Hydroinzenjering Co. Ltd.
