The state-run Vodo-hospodárska Výstavba is planning to build the Sereď-Hlohovec hydropower plant on the Váh River. The project is worth Sk11 billion (€365.1 million). The main purposes of the new dam are to facilitate goods traffic on the river, generate energy and implement flood prevention measures. The hydropower plant to be built on the dam should have an output of 50 megawatts, and generate over 182 gigawatt hours of electricity annually. Construction is planned to start in 2010 and be completed by 2015. Jobs will be generated for 1,200 people on the construction site.
