Geocache Description:

[EN] The cache is dedicated to the newest of the HES of Daugava - the HES of Riga.

[LV] Slepnis veltits jaunakajai Daugavas elektrostacijas - Rigas HES.


[EN] The Riga HES is the 2nd largest HES of Latvia (After Plavinas HES in Aizkraukle), with 402 MW of total turbine power and a total of 792.5 GWH of electrical power in 2009.

The HES started its operation September 1975, but was planned as early as in year 1910. The project was cancelled because of World War I. The building was started in year 1967 and was totally completed on August 20, 1985.

This cache takes you to the lodes of Riga HES where an old pumping station can be found as well as several lodes that are ment for fish to get around the HES. The cache is located on a metal bridge above one of the fish trenches. The place cannot be directly accessed by car and the easiest way to get there is from the main Riga ringroad.

Please be very careful when you take and put the cache back, put in exactly the same location as due to uncarefulness it can float away!!!

[LV] Noliekot slepni atpakal, ludzu esi loti uzmanigs! Novieto to lidzena vieta pie metala, neuzmanigs novietojums var likt slepnim iekrist udeni un aizpeldet!!!

The cache was placed while cycling around Riga ring road and was placed by thearmi and bindons. Have fun, enjoy the nice place and take some food and drinks with you, if you like to picnick in both industrial and open air environment.
