GORNO-ALTAISK, March 15 (Itar-Tass) — The Sayano-Shushenskaya hydro power station has put into service a new hydropower unit named No.7 on Thursday. Vice-premier Igor Sechin, who arrived to attend the launching ceremony, pressed the "start" button on the new hydropower unit.
The purpose of Sechin's visit is to check the progress of the restoration of the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydropower station and launch a new hydropower unit built to the latest technologies. It is a second new hydropower unit put into service at the hydropower station.
Vladimir Putin was the first to press the "start" button of a first new hydropower unit commissioned last December. A total of six hydropower units, including the two new ones, have been put into operation at the Sayano- Shushenskaya hydropower stataion since a devastating accident there in 2009.
A gala ceremony of commissioning the new power unit was attended by head of the government of Khakasia Viktor Zimin and Chairman of RusHydro Board Yevgeny Dod.
The design service life of the new hydropower unit was increased to 40 years with maximum efficiency making up 96.6 percent.
