Krasnoyarsk Dam, Divnogorsk
(4.8/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
The Krasnoyarsk Dam is a 124m high concrete gravity dam located on the Yenisey River about 30km upstream from Krasnoyarsk in Divnogorsk, Russia. It was constructed from 1956 to 1972 and supplies 6,000 MW of power, mostly used to supply the KrAZ (Krasnoyarsky Aluminievyy Zavod, Krasnoyarsk Aluminum Plant). Both power and aluminum plants are controlled by the RUSAL company.As a result of the damming, the Krasnoyarsk Reservoir was created. This reservoir, informally known as Krasnoyarsk Sea, has an area of 2000km2 and a volume of 73.3km3. It is 388km in length and 15km in width at its widest, has an average depth of 36.6m, and a depth of 105m near the dam.The Krasnoyarsk dam has affected the local climate. Normally the river would freeze over in the cold Siberian winter, but since the dam releases unfrozen water year-round, the river never freezes in the 200-300 kilometers downstream. In winter, the frigid air interacts with the warm river water to produce fog, which shrouds Krasnoyarsk and other downstream areas.The dam is equipped with a canal inclined plane to allow passage of ships. It is in fact an electric rack railway. The track gauge is. At the time of its construction, this feat of modern engineering allowed for ships to be physically re-moved in only 90 minutes. Held to be a landmark symbol of Krasnoyarsk, it is depicted on the 10-ruble bill.

  • The legend of Divnogorska, the famous HYDROELECTRIC POWER STATION with its unique Lift to move the ships. The place is very beautiful, you can descend to the Yenisei River. Suitable for hiking. And of course, the history of construction and all that was connected with this place makes you wonder.
