Basic characteristics of the construction and its future operation:

SHPP Švošov is designed to utilize hydro-energetic potential of Váh River in its upper section. The small hydro power plant is located approximately 1.6 km far from a municipality Švošov. The designed maximum usable flow takes into account average discharges in a particular location. Maximum usable flow of one turbine is 25.00 m3.s-1.

MVE Švošov consists of a weir, corridor for migration of fish and building of the power plant. Partially, it is designed in the riverbed and, partially, on the right riverbank. The building of SHPP together with the corridor for migration of fish is located in the riverbed and the weir is on the right bank of Váh River.
