Dnister pumped-storage hydro project in Ukraine on schedule

The second unit of Ukraine's Dnister pumped-storage hydropower project is on schedule for operation in 2012, media reports indicate. Dnister will be one of the largest pumped-storage hydro projects in the world.

Officials said construction of the hydro project is going as planned and that project deadlines will be met, Ukraine media reported.

Ukraine utility OJSC UkrHydroEnergo put the first unit of the Dnister pumped-storage hydro project into operation in 2010.
