JSC Institute Hydroelectric developing upgrade project for Russia's Kamskaya plant

MOSCOW, Russia 3/5/12 (PennWell) -- RusHydro's JSC Institute Hydroproject has begun designing an all-inclusive modernization project of the 458-MW Kamskaya hydroelectric project.

The Kamskaya facility is part of the Volga-Kama cascade in central Russia.

JSC Institute Hydroproject will develop the modernization plan with previous rehabilitation and reconstruction work taken into account. According to a release, 17 of the facility's 23 unitshave already been upgraded.

"The main goal is to increase the hydropower plant's safety and reliability, taking into account the latest technical requirements entered into after the accident at the Sayano-Shushenskaya plant," chief project engineer Eduard Doroshenko said.

Doroshenko said he anticipates the design work for Kamskaya's reconstruction to be complete in 2014.
