The hydraulic jump basin crane at the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP is re-sited on the right bank of the Yenisei
Within the scope of the current work to restore the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP, the KBGS-1000 hydraulic jump basin crane has been re-sited. It is now situated on the right bank of the River Yenisei in the tailrace area. The crane has been relocated in order to minimise risks associated with the possibility of icing-up of the high-standing structures during the HPP’s operations in the autumn-winter period of 2009-2010.
The need to relocate the hydraulic jump basin crane was included in the list of measures drawn up in compliance with the recommendations made by the commission for the pre-declaration investigation at the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP.
Specialists of scientific-research design institutes and operating personnel of the power station are now developing a complex of measures to combat icing-up of the structures of the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP spillway during the impending autumn-winter period. These include mechanical removal of icing by knocking the ice of the structures, spraying of a special de-icing liquid, installation of additional surface-heating systems, etc.
It will be recalled that the commission for investigation of the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP worked from 14 to
