The HPP was built 35 years old. During its construction the severe climate of the Far East was taken into consideration.  It has a number of unique characteristics. Thus, the stability of the HPP is ensured by the weight of the construction and special abutments. Besides, it has diagonal turbines which are rather complex but much more effective in work.

Do you see the stones and pieces of metal? There used to be a quay that had been destructed in 2007 due to severe flood. In 1928 there was a similar severe flood that lasted 2 months and destructed 160 inhabited localities. Today the situation with the adjacent inhabited areas is handled easily thanks to the HPP.
