The upper reservoir is insulated with 18 cm layer of natural asphalt, which was imported from Albánie- it was needed because it is material that can withstands temperature range -30 up to +60 ºC.

The main task of the plant is to ensure the stability of the electricity grid, for which the necessary balance between current consumption and power supplied energy resources. Several times daily it passes from the pump to the turbine mode and vice versa. Due to the onset of wind and solar power to greatly increase the instability of the system is why recently transferred power to the pump mode during the day, whereas previously passed into this mode in most cases only at night.
