RusHydro and Amur Region, with the assistance of UNDP, will preserve biodiversity in the construction of the Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP

RusHydro and the Amur Region, with the assistance of UNDP, concluded an agreement on the preservation of biodiversity during the construction of the Nizhne-Bureiskaya HPP, the company's press service reports.

The Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP project will be implemented in accordance with international experience in the field of biodiversity conservation. This intention is recorded in the agreement signed by the Amur Region, OJSC Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP and the Project of the United Nations Development Program / Global Environment Facility and the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia “Objectives of Biodiversity Conservation in the Policy and Programs of Development of the Energy Sector of Russia”.

The parties agreed to assess the compliance of the Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP project with the advanced inter
international requirements and standards for the conservation of biodiversity in the implementation of hydropower projects. For this purpose, a group of experts will be formed, which in the near future will begin work, including directly at the construction site.


To reduce the negative impact of the construction of the Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP, compensation measures will be developed and implemented. Within the framework of the socio-ecological monitoring program, changes in the state of biodiversity during the construction of the Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP and the filling of the reservoir will be investigated. They will allow to assess the actual impact of construction on the plant, wildlife and ichthyofauna and, if necessary, take corrective measures.
