RusHydro Plans 15 Small Hydropower Projects in Northern Ossetia

Russian hydropower producer RusHydro plans to construct as many as 15 small hydropower projects in the republic of Northern Ossetia, wire services reported.

The small hydro plants are to be built at the Fiagdon and Uruh rivers, as well as the Ardon river confluent rivers - the Sadonka, the Arkhondon, the Tsmikomdon and others, reports indicate.

Timeframes for the project have yet to be disclosed.      

In other news, RusHydro plans to complete upgrading the main equipment at its Rybinsk and Uglich hydro plants by 2020.

As part of the upgrade, RusHydro has already reconstructed a second power unit at the Uglich hydro plant, after which the unit's capacity increased to 65 MW from the previous 10 MW. The upgrade was carried out by Austria's Voith Hydro and cost an estimated 34 million euros.
