Evraz entirely restores power supply to its Kuzbass enterprises

MOSCOW. Aug 17 (Interfax) - Evraz Group has entirely restored supply of power to its Kuzbass-based enterprises following the accident at Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP, the company said.

The accident at the HPP took place on Monday morning when part of the dam imploded, which resulted in the destruction of two sluices and three hydraulic units, as well as the collapse of a turbine room roof.

As a result, supply of electricity to major enterprises in the southern Kuzbass, such as metal producers OJSC NKMK and OJSC ZSMK, has been limited.
