The eighth hydroelectric generating unit at JSC RusHydro’s Boguchanskaya plant began operating Dec. 30.

This brings total installed capacity of all operating units to 1,998 MW, with a working capacity based on reservoir level of 1,362 MW.

The first seven 333-MW units were put into operation during 2012 and 2013. Preparation of the final unit for testing is currently under way. Each unit was manufactured by Power Machines at a cost of US$117.3 million.

From January to November 2013, the Boguchanskaya powerhouse supplied 4,367 GW of electricity to the wholesale and capacity market, RusHydro (LSE: HYDR) says.

Development of Boguchanskaya, on the Angara River in the northern part of Russia’s Krasnoyarsk Region, is a 50/50 joint venture of RusHydro and Russian aluminum company UC RUSAL.
