The Primorskiy Territory Administration and Distributed Generation Company (DGC) signed an agreement on the implementation of an investment project to create modern cogeneration energy centers in the region. The ceremony, attended by the Acting Governor of Primorye Andrei Tarasenko and the company’s deputy general director Evgeniy Konopelkin, took place on Thursday, February 15, at the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi.
According to preliminary estimates, the investment in the project will constitute about 4-6 billion rubles. A more accurate amount will be determined after the company conducts a study of the conditions for the implementation of the project. In particular, DGC will determine the demand for energy resources from the population and enterprises of Primorye, select the land for the construction of energy centers, analyze the availability of the communications connected to them, and work out the issue of registration of town-planning and architectural documentation.
For reference: Cogeneration energy centers are installations that produce both thermal and electrical energy. They represent independent, fully automated engineering facilities operating in an autonomous mode.
It is assumed that with the use of the existing infrastructure in Primorye, capacity will be increased and the material and technical base of power supply facilities will be improved. According to Andrei Tarasenko, such energy facilities can be used not only in Vladivostok, but also in the whole territory of the region.
“This is an alternative – 2,700 megawatts. For example, three days ago the accident happened in the territory, 750 megawatts were lost, the consequences could be serious. In order to have a reserve of opportunities, we plan to build such energy centers,” – the Governor said.
It was noted that Distributed Generating Company LLC has already had experience in the construction of energy centers in Primorye. In particular, on the Russkiy Island – within the framework of the Eastern Economic Forum.
