Tajik energy authorities to inspect technical state of power plants
According to him, by energy minister’s order working group have been set up to inspect technical state of Tajik power plants.
We will recall that on August 17, 2009, the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP, which the largest power plant in Russia and the world's sixth-largest hydroelectric plant by average power generation, suffered a catastrophic "pressure surge" known as a water hummer. Water immediately flooded the engine and turbine rooms and caused a transformer explosion. As of 27 August 2009, 71 people were found dead while 4 people are still listed as missing. Power generation from the station ceased completely following the incident, with the resulting blackout in residential areas being alleviated by diverting power from other plants.
