Information Centre of the Dalešice Hydro Power Station

Basic Information

The pumped-storage Dalešice Hydro Power Station was built between 1970 and 1978 on the Jihlava river in the area of the Kramolín municipality. The fill dam is 104 m high and the power station is equipped with four sets of reversing Francis turbines, each with a capacity of 112.5 MW (the total capacity of the power station is 450 MW). Some 7 km downstream is the 49 m high dam of the Mohelno equalization basin with a vertical axis Kaplan turbine of 1.2 MW capacity and a horizontal Francis turbine of 0.5 MW capacity. The complex of two dams and power stations is not used only for generation of electricity and water resources management, but also for recreation, and they play an environmental role, too. There is an Information Centre at the power station available to general public.
