All HEP’s thermal power plants and cogeneration plants –  thermal and heat power plants have obtained Decisions for using dangerous chemicals in line with the Law on Chemicals, which are used to prepare water for the generation of electricity and heat energy and the regeneration of ion-exchange resins in the chemical preparation of water.

In HEP’s switchyards and substations examinations of tightness of oil pits and pipelines are carried out regularly, and in accordance with their results rehabilitation is planned and conducted. Water tightness of all water structures for draining waste water and temporary waste storages is examined in all HEP’s hydro power plants, thermal power plants and cogeneration plants – thermal and heat power plants.
