The Kambarata-2 Hydro Power Plant (also known as Kambar-Ati-2 or Kambaratinsk 2) is a hydroelectric power station in on the Naryn River in Kambar, Kyrgyzstan.[1] It has 3 individual Francis turbine-generators[2] with a nominal output of around 120 MW each which will deliver up to 360 MW of power. The first generator was operational on November 27, 2010. The power plant's dam is 60 m (197 ft) tall and it creates a 70,000,000 m3 (56,750 acre·ft) reservoir of which 8,000,000 m3 (6,486 acre·ft) is active (or useful) for power generation.[3]
