Nikolai Aleksandrovich Filimonov graduated in 1921 from the Petrograd Polytechnic Institute as a civil engineer. As a private consultant, he then was involved in the Volkov hydropower station until 1926, and in the Svir scheme until 1938, one of the largest schemes of his country. The latter was complicated by the presence of poor soil conditions. By the end of World War II Filimonov had advanced to chief engineer and was associated with the All-Union State Institute for Planning Hydro-electric Power Stations, Lengidroenerproekt. From 1949 to 1952 he was a deputy chief engineer of the Volga-Don Canal project and was awarded the Medal Hero of Socialist Labor for outstanding services and the State Prize for the novel construction techniques introduced. Between 1955 and 1959 Filimonov was engaged with the design of the Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric power station, then the World's largest complex for hydropower generation. In 1959, Filimonov changed from a practicing engineer to a teacher, where he passed his knowledge to the youth. He was thus a Member of the Hydrotechnical Faculty of the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute, and a chairman of the hydraulic engineering section of the Central Board of the Scientific-Technical Society of the power and electricity industries.
Filimonov has authored a number of technical papers and two books in which he highlighted the more practical aspects of hydropower engineering. He proposed novel methods to implement hydraulic schemes in the landscape, thereby accounting for the environmental concerns. He particularly contributed to the hydropower schemes of Ust-Kamenogorskaya in Kazakhstan, of Verhne-Turskaya in the Lake Baikal region and of Nevskaya on the River Neva running into the Baltic Sea.
