JSC Regional Power Generation Co. of Dagestan (Dagenergo) reports the replacement of central warning system equipment is complete at the 220-MW Miatly hydroelectric project on the Sulak River in Russia’s Dagestan Republic.
Dagenergo said contractor JSC Uliyanovsk Equipment Design Office replaced equipment in operation since the station commissioning in 1986 with new warning system equipment based on Siemens controls. The utility said the work cost 1.16 million rubles (US$43,615).
Warning systems for generating Unit 1 were replaced in April during unit repairs. Unit 2 systems were replaced in September during work on that unit.
Miatly is in the Sulak hydropower cascade between the 1,000-MW Chirkey and the 72-MW Chirurt projects. (HNN 8/30/06)
