Kiev Hydroelectric Station is a run-of-river power plant on the Dnieper River in Vyshhorod, Ukraine. The 288 m (945 ft) long dam creates the Kiev Reservoir with the purpose of hydroelectric power generation and navigability with the dam's associated lock. The first of 20 generators in the power station was commissioned in 1964, the last in 1968. Together with the Kiev Pumped Storage Power Station, it creates a hydroelectricity generating complex. It is operated by the Ukrhydroeneho that is part of the state company Energy Company of Ukraine. Turbines for the plant were produced by the Kharkiv Factory "Turboatom", generators - Kharkiv Factory "Elektrovazhmash".[1][2]
