  • 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.

    Work on the Dnister hydropower project, which is being built in the Chernivtsi oblast on the Dnister River, will be ongoing as more units are brought into operation. Construction on the project began in 1983.

    The overall cost of the project is 5.8 billion hryvnia (US$720 million), previous reports indicated.

    According to designs, the hydro plant will have an electric output of 2,268 MW in generating mode and 2,947 MW in pumping mode. The station will have seven identical pumping units.
