Gotsatlinskaya hydro station is now being built in Dagestan.It is planned to be put into operation in 2013. Let’s see at the construction site in the Dagestan mountains.
This object is probably the most impressive – the service tunnel spillway.
Water intake. Do you see people there?
Pillar crane over the building of the hydro station.
Height of the spillway is a bit more than 12 m. The width – 6 m. Further the height is decreasing and the horseshoe-shaped tunnel turns into the round one.
Here will be the dam. Its square will be only 1,82 km2, the full capacity – 48,10 million m3. 109,71 hectares are used for the dam. There is no need to resettle anyone, nobody lives here.
The river damming was done in 2009. Now the temporary spillway is being used. In future it will be partially concreted.
Foundation pit where they are going to erect a pebble dam 69 m high.
The hydro plant power is 100 MW
To the right is a future tail bay, the temporary spillway – behind it.
General view of the construction site. The water intake is to the left from the dam, service spillway is to the right.
The rock has lost its part!
The dam will be built in the narrow place of the gorge
