Caption: Hydroelectric dam. View of part of the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric dam. This is the largest power plant in Russia and the sixth largest hydropower plant in the world. It has ten turbines for a total installed capacity of 6400MW (megawatts). This photograph was taken in 2009 a few months after a major accident at the dam. A turbine became unbalanced and failed, breaching its cover, leading to the flooding of the turbine hall and the explosion of a transformer. 74 workers died and 40 tones of transformer oil were released.
