Vranje – The construction of a mini hydroelectric power plant “Prvonek” on the Banjstica River, which is in the vicinity of Vranjska Spa, or more precisely on the accumulation system for supplying Vranje and Bujanovac with water, is to begin. The “Prvonek” hydroelectric power plant is going to be the first hydroelectric power plant in the system of 18 mini hydroelectric power plants of the Electric Power Industry of Serbia, which are going to be built over the next few years with the funds of the European Bank and Electric Power Industry of Serbia.  .

The Electric Power Industry of Serbia said that 1.4 million euro would be invested in the development of two 100 and 800 kilowatt electrical generating units. Upon completion of the construction works this September, “Prvonek” will be generating from 2.5 to three million kilowatt hours per annum, which will be sufficient for the needs of 250 to 500 households.
