Ust-Srednekanskaya hydroelectric — Power plant being built on the Kolyma River, in the Magadan region. Included in the Kolyma hydroelectric system.
At the moment, installation of the first unit power plant is completed, work is underway on the second unit. His final installation will be completed by early September. As of October, is scheduled to enter into service starting complex plant. In addition, preparing the site for installation of transformers, reinforced concrete works are carried out, is finishing buildings.
At the construction site employs about 750 people, most of them residents of the Magadan region, including Srednekansky district. According to the program of development of the Far East and Trans-Baikal in 2012 will amount to finance the construction of more than 2 billion rubles.

Ust-Srednekanskaya plant is of great importance for the economy of the Magadan region, the development of its mining complex. The new plant in cascade with the Kolyma HPP will provide energy major mining enterprises in the fields of the Yana-Kolyma gold province. Simultaneously with the launch of the Ust-Srednekanskoy hydropower, energy must provide external power supply for mining industry, building power lines. The work of these companies in the medium term will increase by several times the annual output of gold in the Magadan region.
Construction of Ust-Srednekanskoy plant began in 1991. In 1993, the first cubic meter of concrete was laid in 1999, has begun installation of components of the turbines. Construction repeatedly on the verge of closure, but each time managed to prove its necessity for the region and keep at-least the minimum level of funding. In recent years, funds for the construction of the station were dispensed at a higher level, which significantly enhance performance.

The construction of an earth dam
The task of the water dump — skipping unnecessary costs of water (up to 20,000 m3 / s). For this purpose, it is equipped with 10 deep spillways size 6×12 m
All 10 spillways are working now, however deep they will be after the filling of the reservoir.
In the power plant building must be equipped with 4 radial-axial hydraulic unit. The design capacity of power plant — 570 MW and average annual production — 2.55 billion kWh, maximum lift — 62 m
Currently, built the first phase of the power house, two hydro. By remaining hydroelectric prepared base — mounted spiral case and draft tube.
First hydraulic unit
On the first fully assembled turbine generator is being installed. This is his stator.
Construction and manufacturing complex, which will be focused management station. There is also a distributor and closed switchgear (GIS) 220 kV.
