URL More about Hydro Pumped Storage Amfilochia
The Hydro Pumped Storage Amfilochia is located in the Municipality of Amfilochia, Prefecture of Aitoloakarnania, Central Greece. It consists of two separate upper reservoirs, “Agios Georgios” and “Pyrgos”, and a common lower reservoir, the existing Kastraki Lake (Public Power Company - PPC ownership). The electromechanical equipment will be installed in two independent powerhouses located near the north-eastern bank of the Kastraki Lake. The total installed capacity of the system is approx. 680 MW and the net annual electricity generation is 812 GWh. The total budget of the project is expected to exceed the amount of 500M euros. The Agios Georgios reservoir has an effective storage capacity around 5 x 106 m^3; installed power (turbine mode): 370MW (4 reversible units); Installed power (pumping mode): 403 MW. The Pyrgos reservoir has an effective storage capacity around 2 x 106 m^3; Installed power (turbine mode): 231 MW (2 reversible units); Installed power (pumping mode): 237 MW.
