The providing of reliable energy supply and the safe operation of equipment and hydro-power engineering for the population and the environment is one of RusHydro’s key strategic objectives.
The approaches used to ensure energy supply reliability and the safety of equipment, buildings and structures are fixed in the provisions of RusHydro’s Technical Policy which came into effect in 2011. The instrument used to implement the Technical Policy is the Production Program which is developed based on the results of evaluating equipment condition, the forecasts for energy consumption in the regions and the water content of rivers, as well as industry standard requirements. The activities of the Program are planned for the medium (6 years) and long-term (15 years) outlook.
To identify and to analyze insurance risks at production assets the Company conducts independent technical review, and introduces a system of key performance indicators (KPIs) and limits (control figures) including monitoring of object protection in the event of natural disasters.
