Overview[change | change source]

Construction of the Dniester HPP began in 1973.

On July 29, 1977, the builders of the Dniester HPP changed the course of the river near the village of Novodnistrovsk.

In 1981, two hydroelectric power units were put into operation.

The buildings of the Dniester HPP are located at a distance of 678 km from the mouth of the Dniester. The hydroelectric dam created a reservoir 194 km long.

For 25 years the cities of Moldova and Ukraine, located on the banks of the Dniester from hydroelectric power plants to the Black Sea, do not suffer from the destructive effects of floods.
