A cooperation agreement between Rusatom Smart Utilities JSC (RSU, a business unit of Rosatom) and Rushydro was signed on March 25, 2024, at the 13th ATOMEXPO International Forum held in the Sirius Federal Territory.

The document is to facilitate the technological development of both companies, their exchange of best practices and expansion of promising operation lines, including operations in the power sector of the Far Eastern Federal District of Russia.

The agreement follows up on the joint initiatives outlined by Rosatom and Rushydro at the 2017 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. In the years following the forum, the partners have been actively expanding their cooperation, with Rushydro Group’s project institutes participating in the design of hydrotechnical facilities, technical water supply and treatment systems for Rosatom’s facilities under construction or being designed. They have actively engaged with Rosatom’s subsidiaries in the use of composite materials, implementing pilot projects on external reinforcement at three hydro power plants of the Rushydro Group (Ezmin HPP, Zhiguli HPP, and Zagorsk PSPP).

Rosatom and Rushydro’s cooperation goes back many years, not just in technology development but also in talent training. Rushydro’s research and construction professionals take part in the annual International Construction Championship organized by the Russian Ministry of Construction and the Rosatom, as well as in other projects.
