    RusHydro: Bureyskaya HPP generated more than 100 billion kilowatt-hours


    November 22, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      The largest power plant in the Far East, the Bureyskaya HPP, has generated more than 100 billion kWh of environmentally friendly, renewable electricity since commissioning. This corresponds to the energy consumption of the Amur Region, where the hydroelectric power plant is located, for more than 10 years. The construction of the Bureyskaya HPP began in 1976, but was actually suspended in the 1990s and resumed in 1999.

      Key Highlights:

      * During the summer, 6 flood waves were observed with an inflow of more than 3000 m3/With.

      * The inflow reached its maximum value on June 1, its value was 6900 m3/With.

      * In total, during the flood period, 34.5 cubic kilometers of flood waters arrived at the site of the hydroelectric station.

      Original Press Release:

      Nov. 17 -- RusHydro issued the following news release:

      The largest power plant in the Far East, the Bureyskaya HPP, has generated more than 100 billion kWh of environmentally friendly, renewable electricity since commissioning. This corresponds to the energy consumption of the Amur Region, where the hydroelectric power plant is located, for more than 10 years.

      The construction of the Bureyskaya HPP began in 1976, but was actually suspended in the 1990s and resumed in 1999. The first hydroelectric unit of the station was put into operation in 2003, and in 2009 the Bureyskaya HPP reached its full capacity.

      The increased output of the Bureya HPP this year was facilitated by the high water content of Bureya. During the summer, 6 flood waves were observed with an inflow of more than 3000 m3/With. The inflow reached its maximum value on June 1, its value was 6900 m3/With. In total, during the flood period, 34.5 cubic kilometers of flood waters arrived at the site of the hydroelectric station. The Bureyskaya HPP kept two-thirds of this inflow in the reservoir, securing the settlements located downstream.

      The generation of electricity at hydroelectric power stations depends on many factors, including the water content of the year. The activity of hydroelectric power plants is under strict control of the state: the modes of filling and drawdown of reservoirs, the passage of floods to HPPs are established by the Ministry of Natural Resources represented by the Federal Water Resources Agency. The operational task for the generation of electricity is issued by JSC "System Operator of the Unified Energy System" (JSC "SO UES") - a 100% state-owned company that carries out a unified operational and dispatching control on the territory of Russia.
