In Karachay-Cherkessia officially launched the latest Zelenchuksky hydroelectric power plant. Technology and principles of operation open previously unavailable power. GES alone is able to provide electricity to half of the Republic.
In the foothills of Karachaevo-Cherkessia, Russian engineers managed to create a unique energy object. Hydroelectric power plant dual purpose. Its units are able to accumulate the energy of water. It's very simple. Like a high school problem about 2 pools. One of them in the lower part of the station, the other above the gorge. At the time when the load on the network a small, special units, turbine pumps will pump water to the top drive. That is, to create the reserve. Expend energy it will be in the so-called peak load. All testing ended on "perfectly".
The new turbine double action work normally. Control of all units takes on modern electronics. Its software has made multiple protection from various emergency situations that has ever occurred on similar sites. Run station will change from 3 business. In total, the new plant will annually produce up to 150 million Kilowatt-hours of electricity. This will reduce the dependence on energy of the Republic at least half.
