Kolyma HPP produces idle discharges of water to provide the necessary navigational level on the Kolyma River

The Kolyma HPP in the Magadan Region has begun idle water discharges to ensure the necessary navigable levels on the Kolyma River. According to the press service of JSC RusHydro, the decision was made by an interdepartmental working group to regulate the operation of the Kolyma reservoir.

"The decision will extend the delivery of vital goods and food products to the settlements of the Verkhnekolymsky District of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) and Bilibino District of the Chukotka Region," the report says. At 23 September four ships with fuel and food remained blocked in the area of ​​Lower Seimchan. It was not possible to take the cargo out, since the depths on the rolls were no more than 50 cm, with the required 150, see.

The established volume of idle discharges already by 24 September should ensure compliance with shipping levels downstream from the cascade of Kolyma HPPs, which are necessary for the delivery of goods by river transport to remote northern territories. After achievement of navigational levels, the unoccupied water discharges at the Kolyma HPP are planned to be completely stopped, which will allow further accumulation of water reserves in the reservoir, for reliable and uninterrupted operation of the station during the winter maximum load.
