power generation

The second-largest HPP in Russia and one of the ten largest globally.

Construction began in 1956 and the power plant was commissioned in 1972. From the commissioning of its 10th turbine in April 1971, the plant was the world’s biggest power producer until Grand Coulee Dam reached 6,181 MW in 1983. Considered a landmark symbol of Krasnoyarsk, it is depicted on the 10-rouble note.

The power plant is contained in a 1,072-metre-long and 124-metre-high dam, housing 12 power generators of 500 MW each.

Development plans

In 2019, within a modernisation program, the Group will replace the HPP’s runners.
