The Iron Gate 2 power plant ( Serbian Ђердап II Đerdap II ; Roman. Porţile de Fier II ) is a run-of- river power plant in the Danube on the border between Serbia and Romania and is located at the Iron Gate . It is located downstream after the Eisernes Tor 1 power plant and is the last Danube power plant before the Danube Delta into the Black Sea .
Planning for the dam, which is used equally by both countries, began in 1977, and operations began in 1984. In the year of completion, the bottleneck output for 16 turbines was 432 MW , with eight turbines of the power plant being assigned to one country each. During technical modernization, two more turbines were installed on the Romanian side in the following years, and the output of all turbines was increased to 28 MW each and a total of 280 MW. Two more turbines were also installed on the Serbian side, but the output per turbine remained the same, so that the Serbian power plant side has a total output of 270 MW. The total bottleneck capacity is 550 MW (as of 2011).
The dam of the power plant has been used as a border crossing between Serbia and Romania since the end of 2011.
