Five years have passed since the catastrophic accident at Russia's largest Sayano-Shushenskaya hydro power plant (HPP). On August 17, 2009, the dam in Russia’s Siberia suffered an industrial disaster, when the engine and turbine rooms were flooded, which caused an underwater explosion. The disaster killed 75 people and injured 13. About 50 tonnes of turbine oil got spilled into the Yenisei River. The damage was estimated at over $13 million.
