Ombla hydropower plant – design for use of groundwater energy in karst

Tomislav Paviša, Zvonimir Sever

Abstract

The water power potential of surface watercourses in Dinaric karst areas, spreading in a wide belt along Croatian coast, has for the most part already been put to practical use. However, water power benefits of a significant quantity of water accumulated in the karst underground of this vast area have not so far been adequately exploited. Based on extensive research, the design has been prepared for the Ombla hydropower plant whose specific feature is that all its structures are buried underground, while the water would come from an underground water storage, to be created by construction of an underground dam.

Keywords
