Mratinje Dam - Mratinje hydro-electric power plant
The hydroelectric power station is located on the river Piva in Montenegro, about 10 km upstream from the confluence of the Tara and the Piva, in the narrowest part of the Piva canyon.
The Mratinje Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the canyon of the Piva River in Montenegro.
The dam was completed in 1975. Its construction resulted in the flooding of the Piva canyon and the creation of Lake Piva, which, with its 12.5 km², is the second largest lake in Montenegro.
Its construction resulted in the flooding of the Piva canyon and the creation of Lake Piva, which, with its 12.5 km², is the second largest lake in Montenegro. The dam is 220 metres (720 ft) high? one of the highest in Europe. The dam is 268 metres (879 ft) long and 4.5 metres (15 ft) thick at the crest, while it is 30 metres (98 ft) long and 36 metres (118 ft) thick at the base. The foundations go as deep as 38 metres (125 ft) into the ground. 820,000 cubic metres (1,070,000 cu yd) of concrete and 5,000 tonnes of steel were built into the dam. The hydroelectric power station at Mratinje is capable of producing 860 gigawatt-hours per annum. The location of the 16th century Piva Monastery was flooded by the lake, so while the dam was built, the monastery was broken into pieces and moved to a higher ground, 3.5 km away. It was reconstructed in the original way.

Mratinje - Talsperre
Die Mratinje-Talsperre in Montenegro ist eine große Talsperre mit einer 220 m hohen Staumauer in einer engen steilen Schlucht im Tal der Piva, eines Quellflusses der Drina. Der Stausee, der Pivsko jezero, liegt nahe der Grenze zu Bosnien-Herzegowina. Ihren Namen hat die Talsperre von dem Ort Mratinje und dem Mratinje-Felsen, der 2,85 km oberhalb der Staumauer liegt.
Die Bogenstaumauer ist doppelt gekrümmt und hat eine horizontal und vertikal veränderliche Dicke. Die Kronenlänge wird mit 201 und auch 268 m angegeben. Unterhalb der Staumauer liegt ein Wasserkraftwerk. Seine drei Turbinen erzeugen bei einer Durchflussmenge von 80 m³/s je 120 MW, zusammen 360 MW, und erzeugen jährlich 860 GWh Elektrizität.
