KRASNOYARSK, October 21 (Itar-Tass) —— A new safety declaration of hydropower facilities at the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydropower plant, which includes the Mainsky hydropower unit and a coastal water discharge facility, entered into force. The document, which the Lengidroproekt Institute had drafted, passed successfully a state expertise and the Russian technological watchdog approved it until September 26, 2014, the RusHydro press service reported on Friday.
“The safety declaration is the main document, which substantiates the safety of the hydropower facilities, their compliance with the safety criteria, the project, the current technical standards and rules and determines the nature and scale of probable emergency situations and the safe operation measures. The declaration was preceded with a full examination of hydropower facilities with the experts from the Russian technological watchdog compulsorily involved in it,” the press service said.
When drafting the new declaration the Siberian regional emergency situation centre examined the condition of the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydropower facilities, their scale and nature and the safety of the plant personnel from probable hazardous factors. The rigidity and reliability of important hydropower facilities, the improvement of the technological process and making the control system, communication and warning systems more stable were also examined.
“The measures for lower risks of crashes and disasters, the creation of an insurance fund of design, technological and plant operating documentation and the documentation keeping were also assessed. The training for rescue and other urgent works, the measures to restore the destroyed production and life-supporting systems were examined separately,” the RusHydro press service reported.
The Ministry of Emergency Situations presented a final report that proved the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydropower plant to be ready for prevention, localization and elimination of emergency situations and to have enough forces and means to protect people and territories from emergency situations that emerge in the operation of highly blast hazardous facilities and hydropower facilities.
The safety declaration of the hydropower facilities is produced to the supervisory agency once in five years since the day of putting the hydropower facilities in constant operation.
