Posted on December 16, 2011 by

The other day, we told you about the history of Chiryurtskaya HPP located on the Sulak River, Dagestan, and now it’s time to see what it is like today.

This is a plan of Chiryurtskaya HPP. Apparently, a lot has changed there by now.

Let’s start with this operating division where all visitors of the HPP have to undergo safety instructions.

This man comes from a family of crane operators and has been working here since 1995.

Two 36-megawatt rotary-blade hydraulic units.

They plan to modernize the hydropower plant soon.

An overhead crane.

Some very old and charming equipment.

Introduction of this hydropower plant played a great role in development of Dagestan economy.

Let’s go downstairs.

This shaft connects the rotor wheel and the generator. It is 3.6 m long and has a diameter of 0.6 m. Rotary speed: 187 revolutions per minute.

    HHmmm,i’ll call it motion power instead of hydro power.
    from motion,to mechanical,to electrical…to the end of the line…it could be beer also,or coca cola,or blood,or oil,it’s the pressure that takes what it need to boost the Mw…….

      Yeah theoretically it could be powered by a lot of things. That doesn’t change the fact its actually powered by water thus it’s hydro power.

        I like to call it the harnessed energy of a coil being hydraulically spun in a magnetic field. Sort of rolls off the tongue, dont you think?

        Number says Powered by BLOOD..??……What the heck……!

      In all fairness. hydro- as a prefix doesn’t just pertain to water it can also mean any liquid. As in hydraulics and hydrodynamics.
