ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Necessary to increase Hydro Generation

PPC S.A.  announces that, due to the increased water inflows in the reservoirs of the Hydro Power Plants (HPPs) as a result of the intense rainfalls, during the recent days, in connection with the already high levels of the water reserves, it is necessary to take immediate measures for the prevention of floods. For this reason and for at least the next 10 days, the hydro generation has to increase to the maximum possible level. In order to allow for the required increased participation of the Hydro Power Plants in the Interconnected System, PPC in cooperation with the HTSO and in accordance with the relevant Codes, will stop the operation of a limited number of Lignite Units.
