Montenegro’s 307 megawatt (MW) Perucica hydropower plant will reconnect to the grid on Sept. 1 after completing an overhaul which began on July 29, its operator power utility Elektroprivreda Crne Gore (EPCG) said on Monday.

The overhaul of EPCG’s oldest hydropower plant is aimed at extending its lifespan and boosting output and reliability.

EPCG operates 649 MW of installed hydropower capacity and 225 MW of coal-fired power generation capacity.
