Small hydro power plant on the river Hornád

The object of the small hydro power plant on the river Hornád is divided into 4 separate parts – inlet, engine room, drain and weir.

These parts form separate dilatation units. The inlet and outlet objects are irregularly curved. The engine room floor plan is rectangular with dimensions 29.6×10.6m. There are two gullies in the engine room, both tapered towards the turbines.

A fish transition channel is located along the outer periphery of the three parts. The weir is about 52.7m long with four pillars. The weir is divided into 3 dilatation units. Steel plates and profiles for anchoring of technological parts are embedded in monolithic structures.
