RusHydro's 5,100-MW Sayano-Shushenskaya sets new daily record

Sayano-Shyshenskaya Hydropower Plant

Russian generator PJSC RusHydro has announced a new daily output record of 110,306,939 kWh from its Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric plant.

The benchmark surpassed nearly 40 years of operation at the 5,100 MW facility and was, according to RusHydro, the "result of favorable hydrological conditions, as well as modernization of automatic reliability systems made to the plant in 2015."

The utility also credited the completion of new transmission lines connecting the Khakass and Krasnodarsky regions last June, further increasing Sayano-Shushenskaya's efficiency.

Sayano-Shushenskaya recently underwent a multi-year rehabilitation program that began after an explosion flooded the plant's turbine room in August 2009.

RusHydro reported that it had commissioned the tenth and final hydro turbine in the project's powerhouse last November.
