On the right bank is located shore spillway, which is intended for the passage of flood rare recurrence.
The five-step drop represents five blanking wells separated by the spillway dam. The function of the differential quenching flow energies - the maximum flow velocity at the inlet to the upper well reach 30 m / s, in conjunction with a riverbed reduced to 4.5 m / s.
ORU 500 The generated current is transmitted from the station to open the dispenser which dispenses a hydroelectric power grid Kuzbass and Khakassia.
