The plant is still functioning today, almost 100 years after its introduction in 1920.
In recent years, the influence of wind power in electrical systems has considerably increased. This means that electricity production is more unpredictable and there is therefore a need for more flexibility.
The hydropower's great regulatory capacity is very useful. By using the hydropower's capacity, one can compensate the operating loss resulting from a smaller amount of available water.
Today, more than ever, there is a need for more flexibility in the production in order to quickly regulate ups and downs in electricity generation or other irregularities in the electrical systems.
