Gorna Arda Hydro Power Project to Get Underway in mid-2014

The construction of a chain of hydro power plants on the upper stream of the Arda river in Bulgaria's south is expected to get underway in mid-2014, the state-run Bulgarian News Agency, BTA, reported, quoting the Kardzhali district governor.
Austria's EVN owns 70% of the project and Bulgaria's state-owned power utility NEK holds the remaining 30%.
The project foresees the construction of three hydropower plants with a total installed capacity of 174.2 megawatts and an average annual output of 4,400 gigawatt hours, as well as three dams.
The construction works are planned to take between three and a half and five years, creating some 2,500 jobs.
