Summary

Vizara Hydropower Project is a diversion type hydropower project that is currently in operation. Vizara HEPP makes use of the head between 1545 m and 1270 m of Manahoz Creek.

Vizara Dam

Cost Effective Solutions

The project has designed with 4 km long and 1.4 m diameter buried penstock which diverts the water directly from the dam to powerhouse. By this way, the project constructed in fast manner and economical solution has been achieved. A cost-effective, long penstock design is performed with the use of two equal capacity Pelton type turbines which minimize waterhammer effect.

Daily Regulation Pondage and Concrete Dam

The project can shift its energy production to peak hours thanks to the five-hour capacity reservoir behind the 26 m high concrete dam.
