/Contemporary history of Russian water power engineering: an expedition to the Bureya with RusHydro

Contemporary history of Russian water power engineering: an expedition to the Bureya with RusHydro

23 April 2014 year

A trip to the Far East, the romantic aura of vast construction sites, and Russian winter — the Mercator film crew was definitely going to enjoy them all. In December, we left for the Amur Region, the river Bureya (the left tributary of the Amur) to shoot a video about the construction of the Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP for RusHydro. It was not our decision to go there in winter. We packed warm clothes and batteries so that frosts of minus 30 degrees and high humidity could not stop us... The short winter days designed our schedule for us — every minute of shooting was precious, and there was no time to get warm. At one point, the participants of the media tour found that our cameraman was missing — Mercator kept filming the all-weather construction site while everyone else was warming up their noses in the warmth and comfort of the coach.

The Moscow team involved in the project had no time to lose, either — we spent hours trying to articulate the word ‘counter-regulating’ and drawing the facilities, making out which way the river flows and what the HPP dam looks like from the inside.
