2009 tasks for construction of the Bureiskaya HPP fulfilled
A regular meeting of the startup operations staff for construction of the Bureiskaya HPP was held under the chairmanship of JSC RusHydro Management Board Member and Far Eastern Division CEO Yuri Gorbenko.
The staff members discussed the results of fulfilling the 2009 assignments for construction of the Bureiskaya HPP, one of the largest investment projects of RusHydro, and mapped out plans for the near future.
In 2009, more than 6.6 billion rubles were spent on implementing the HPP construction project, including 2.7 billion rubles channeled into the financing of construction and assembly work. As a result, the third hydroelectric unit was put into operation in accordance with the standard procedure and the hydropower plant reached its design capacity. In the summer of 2009, the reservoir reached its designed level for the first time, which made it possible to hold large-scale tests of the service spillway. Hoisting cranes were put into operation on the crest of the dam to ensure gate operation. The transformer repair shop in the hollow of the dam and a public amenities center were built.
In 2010, construction of HPP site facilities and the tailrace channel will be completed, as well as construction of the utility and production block and the building for the instrumentation and control system. The oil transformer building will be properly fitted out. Implementation of the program will require about 1.2 billion rubles.
The operations staff members discussed the issues of enhancing reliability and safety through making changes to the design and construction sections, taking into account new trends in hydro-engineering construction, HPP operation practices and new requirements of the Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Supervision (Rostekhnadzor).
"The year 2011 will see completion of the Bureiskaya HPP construction project", Yuri Gorbenko said in conclusion. "We must prepare the facility for acceptance by the government commission".
