PJSC RusHydro has announced the launch of its 30.6-MW Zaragizhskaya hydroelectric plant.
The company said Zaragizhskaya is a “derivation plant” that was designed to operate without a dam. Instead, the pressure needed to operate the project’s turbine is created by a natural height difference in the channel the plant draws its water from.
The project is located in the Kabardino-Balkar Republic, a federal subject of Russia, in the North Caucasus.
HydroWorld.com reported that the Russian energy conglomerate opened the 140-MW Zelenchukskaya last week.
