Boguchan Hydroelectric Power Plant (BogHPP)

The construction of Boguchan Hydroelectric Power Plant began in 1980, but first working began in 1974. The first generating unit must be lauched in 2009 and the completion in 2012.

Common information

The construction of Boguchan Hydroelectric Power Plant began in 1980, but first working began in 1974. The first generating unit must be lauched in 2009 and the completion in 2012.

The structure of BogHPP:

-                gravite concrete dam (height -79 m.)

-                embankment dam with a concrete diaphragm

-                HPP appurtenance

-                Shipping lock

The design of BogHPP was changed several times during its projection and construction. According to the original scheme the generating capacity is 4000 megawatts with the head water 72 m. In 1979 the design was approved and the capacity was 3000 megawatts with annual average electricity generation level – 17.6 billion kilowats/hour.

9 radial-axial hydraulic units must be put (power -333 megawatts). But in fact the construction of BogHPP was stopped from 1994 till 2005. The reason was pressure for money. In 2006 the joint stock companies «GidroOGK» and «Rusal»  began to complete the construction of BogHPP. The completion of BogHPP will be realized during some stages, the generating units – 540 megawatts and by 2010 the capacity – 1620 megawatts.
