Harach to build hydro-plants

FORMER economy minister Ľubomír Harach, who served under the previous Mikuláš Dzurinda cabinet, wants to build small hydro plants on the Hron and Vah rivers.

Harach is a head of the board of directors of the joint stock firm Hydro-Energy. The firm has prepared four pilot projects on the Hron River at an estimated cost of between Sk400 million (€9.5 milion) and Sk600 million (14.3 million), Slovak daily Pravda reported.

Harach wants to finance them through a combination of a bank loan and EU structural funds. The hydro plants should produce about 30 million KWh of electricity per year, which is approximately the annual consumption of 10,000 households.
