Hydro-unit No. 6 of the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP may be the first to start up again at the power station. At the time of the accident that occurred at the power station on Monday morning, this hydro-unit was under repair. Consequently, the turbine and the generator were not caused any electrical damage, meaning that hydro-unit No. 6 might be the first of the hydro-units to start working.
As soon as the emergency in the engine room has been eliminated and specialists are able to inspect the hydro-unit, they will be able to set a precise time for its start-up.
