Dyrhoff Completes Refurbishment and Upgrade of Ilovac HPP rubber dams in Croatia

Among the projects completed by Dyrhoff this year are two replacement rubber dams on the river Kupa, at the Ilovac hydropower facility in Croatia. Measuring 2.58m high by 33.4m each, the two water-filled structures at the 1.4MW run-of-river facility enable a degree of regulation.

As well as replacing the two rubber membranes, at the request of the plant operator, Dyrhoff designed and implemented a number of control system upgrades to enable independent operation of both spans. This will ensure optimum power generation is maintained all year round at the facility.
