7 The Modern Russian Hydroplant

The Modern Russian Hydroplant

Posted on September 27, 2012 by team

We are about to visit the largest hydro power plant in the Russian Far East and one of the most modern power plants in Russia. It is also one of the nodal power plants of the Far Eastern power supply system.

The concrete gravity dam which is 140 m (459 ft) high is the highest dam of such type in Russia.

The power of the plant is 2010 MW. It’s one of the ten largest hydro power plants in Russia. Its construction is not finished yet but it already operates at full capacity. The plant’s counter-regulator, Lower Bureiskaya hydroplant with the power of 320MW will be built soon as well. It is a part of the whole Bureiskaya technological complex.

    thats amazing…i just have a question though, “is this a god dam?”

    I visited the Boulder dam in America many years ago. This reminds me of that place in many ways. Most especially on the inside. You would expect that since they both have the same function, of course. The huge and ornate entry hall of both places are pretty and seem to have no other purpose than to say, “mighty are the works of man!”

    I bet this hydroplant is much better than communism.

      The early U.S.S.R. was self-sufficient in energy thanks to the progressive, visionary policies of V. Lenin. GOELRO was a magnificent testimony to socialism.

    The sad side is that those natural Russian rivers are destroyed, it strongly inflicts the nature. Uh..
