Dnister Hydroelectric Station is situated 678 km down from the Dnister stream mouth. The dam created a reservoir that has a surface area of 143 km2 and volume of 3 milliard m3 (2 milliards are useful). The length of the storage pound is 194 km, and the maximum depth is 54 m. The reservoir enabled a seasonal water flow regulation and an irrigation of 500 thousands hectares of arable land. Apart from this, already 25 years Ukrainian and Moldovan settlements that are situated of the shores of Dnister river downstream from the station don't suffer from devastating impacts of floods and ice jams.
Dniester Hydroelectric Station (HES-1) is a 702 MW (6х117 MW) hydroelectric power station launched in operation in 1983. Dniester HES-1 is the part of the Dniester's Cascade of hydro power stations.
