Building work on the Gradečka facility, PCC’s first small hydropower plant in North Macedonia, started in July 2012. Occasionally tough weather conditions and the rocky ground hampered the excavation work in particular. Nevertheless, the construction phase was successfully concluded just about one year later, with commercial electricity production commencing in August 2013.
