At the request of the company "RusHydro", an animated video clip about the Sayano-Shushenskaya Hydro Power Plant was prepared specifically for the launch of the sixth hydraulic unit, which took place on February 23.
The video clip was presented to the government delegation, and fragments from the clip were aired on many different television channels. The full version of the video clip was aired on the TV channel Russia-24, as well as on the website vesti.ru, where it became one of the leaders of the day in regards to the number of viewers.
The spokesperson for "RusHydro" Elena Veshnyakova:
"So many events have taken place at the station during the last six months, and it would be too complicated and would take too long to retell them. Unfortunately, not everyone understands what actually happened; many people still concoct idle speculations. In order to clarify and elucidate the situation, we decided to make an animated film / "cartoon"/ clearly describing the situation at the station in easy-to-understand way. This animated film is to help people who are not knowledgeable in the hydroelectric field understand what happened at the station on August 17"
