Sayano-Shushenskaya emergency likely to defer Bureiskaya start

10 Sep '09
The commissioning of the Bureiskaya hydroelectric power station in Amur Region may be put off until later as a result of the recent emergency at the Sayano-Shushenskaya station, also part of national energy-generating company RusHydro, RusHydro president Vasily Zubakin said today.

Under initial plans, Bureiskaya was supposed to start operating with the projected capacity of 2GW by the end of this year.

It was earlier reported that RusHydro had $210m plans for completion of the Bureiskaya project in 2009.

According to Mr. Zubakin, despite the emergency the company has no plans for any dramatic revision of its overall $2bn investment program for 2009.

Russias largest hydroelectric power station, Sayano-Shushenskaya, was shut down on August 17 as a result of a flood and destruction of three power units.

RusHydro is the worlds second largest generating company by installed capacity (more than 25GW).
