VAPTECH To Deliver Kaplan Turbine To Croatia

VAPTECH has been awarded with a pilot kaplan turbine project in Croatia

VAPTECH’ presence in the Balkans has been on a steady increase over the years with its latest presence being in Albania.

Croatia is a very potential market for VAPTECH. As of 2017 the government has set out to invest 403.8 million EUR in clean energy to follow the EU strategy of low-carbon power implementation in Europe. The Environment Social Impact Assessment of South East Europe has claimed that “Hydropower potential is Croatia’s best chance for more energy independence”. Even though only 4.9-7% of Croatias generated electricity stemmed from renewable sources, Croatia’ government has various plans to increase this number.
