Hrvatska elektroprivreda (HEP) signed an agreement on the replacement of the primary equipment of the Senj power plant with a community of Croatian companies led by Koncar. The contract is worth Kuna 330 million and is part of the main project for the reconstruction of the Senj power plant worth Kuna 557 million, which will increase the power plant by 20 MW. Work on the Senj power plant will begin in 2022 and end in 2026.

The Senj power plant is located 7 kilometres south of the town of Senj and was initially put into operation in 1965. The total available capacity of the power plant is 216 MW, and the average annual production stands at 970 GWh, about 20 percent of the production of hydropower plants in the Republic of Croatia.
