RusHydro's Far Eastern hydropower plants completed the flood period

At the Far Eastern hydropower plants of RusHydro, the flooding period was completed, due to the arrival of monsoons (winds carrying masses of saturated air from the Pacific Ocean from July to September to the south of the Far East). Flood season 2014 year in the Amur River basin by water content is classified as average water. The total inflow into the reservoirs of the Zeya and Bureikaya HPPs from July to September of 2014 amounted to 23,3 km3waters. This is less than 2 less than in the same period of 2013. Then, during the abnormal flood, 48,6 km3 of water flowed to the dams of these hydroelectric stations, the press service of the power company reports.

During the abnormal flood of 2013, the Zeya and Bureya hydroelectric power plants became the only buffer on the path of "ultrahigh" water that came in July-August to the upper reaches of the two largest Russian tributaries of the Amur - Zeya and Bureya. Both stations kept in their reservoirs about two-thirds of the inflow of these rivers - 19,1 km3, thereby seriously reducing the scale of the largest flood ever recorded in the Amur basin. The Ust-Srednekanskaya hydroelectric power station under construction in the Magadan region, together with the existing higher-level Kolyma hydroelectric power station, played an important role in smoothing out the most powerful acute rain flood in the entire history of observations that passed along the Kolyma River.

Now in all Far Eastern HPPs, due to the onset of negative temperatures, there has been a significant reduction in inflow. The stations operate in the regular mode in strict accordance with the tasks set by the territorial divisions of the Federal Water Resources Agency.
