Boguchany Dam


Multiple Drone Video of the Week Finalist Makhorov brings us this stunning drone video of a gigantic hydroelectric dam in Russian Siberia.  Boguchany Dam is located in the town of Kodinsky in Krasnoyarsk Krai, one of the oblasts (provinces) of the Siberian Federal District.  It's situated on the Angara River, a major tributary of the Yenesei.  While the dam construction began in the 1970's, it wasn't completed until 2015.  It has a rated capacity of almost 3 gigawatts, making it Russia's fourth largest hydro generator as of 2020.
