Uniting the power for 15 years

In December 2019, RusHydro celebrated its 15th anniversary

PJSC RusHydro was established in 2004 as part of the OJSC RAO UES of Russia re-organization. An unprecedented decision was made — to unite almost 50 hydroelectric power stations of RAO UES of Russia into a unique generating company.

In 2011, the energy sector of the Far East entered the RusHydro zone of responsibility — in this macroregion, RusHydro is responsible for both generation, as well as transmission and marketing of electricity and heat to end consumers. All these years the Company has been continuously developing. 52 generation facilities with the total installed capacity of more than 6,000 MW have been commissioned. Several large-scale Soviet long-term construction projects were finished, for example Bureyskaya and Boguchanskaya HPPs, Irganayskaya and Zaramagskaya HPPs, new thermal and hydro power plants were designed and built, generation based on renewable sources of energy is in development.

RusHydro unites high-output power plants and organizations dedicated to planning and surveying, research, engineering, and energy sales. That’s why it is rightly considered one of the country’s largest electric power companies. I am pleased to note, both today and in previous years, that the holding employs competent, experienced experts who preserve their professional traditions and develop them, who understand the importance of and need for their work, and who bet on drawing substantial investments, modernizing industry infrastructure, and introducing innovative technologies. They provide a significant contribution to improving the Unified Energy System of Russia. It is gratifying to know that RusHydro prioritizes environmental safety issues and puts into place a hands-on model of socially responsible and sustainable business.

President of the Russian Federation
