The Old Russian Power Plant

Posted on July 11, 2013 by team

Gizeldonskaya HPP – is one of the oldest power plants of Russia. And probably one of the most beautiful in North Ossetia.

The HPP is located in deep Dargavskoye gorge inside which the Gizeldon river goes down for 300 m creating ideal conditions for construction of a derivation power plant.

The HPP started to be built in 1927 and was put into service in 1934. Since then the HPP has been reliably working without considerable modernizations. However its equipment is outdated and planned to be replaced in the nearest future.

The power plant is equiped by three hydraulic units, its capacity amounts to 22,8 MW.

Modernization has already been started in fact. On the picture above are unique pelton turbines.

    I love this because it is the oldest and such a rich look into a different time. It would be nice to see some sort of drawing or sketch, its hard to understand. Why for example did they cut out the cups?
