A new small hydroelectric plant was brought online in Baku on the premises of 400-MW Shimal-2 power plant in Shuvelyan, which has the highest efficiency in the South Caucasus, informs Trend. Shimal-2 was commissioned in September this year. Previously, the water coming from the Caspian sea to cool the condenser and equipment of steam turbines came back to the sea, and now this water goes to the new SHPP where it is used for power generation. The SHPP was built by local specialists, and foreign experts were attracted to installation activities. All the works took several months to complete.

This SHPP produces about 2,5 million kWh per annum. This power will be consumed by Shimal-1 and Shimal-2 power plants. The saved volume of power will be directed to the national grid.
