The head of the energy Ministry of Russia Alexander Novak and Minister of energy of Crimea Sergey Yegorov told about the work on the energy supply of the Republic.
As said Novak, the construction of gas power plants for the upcoming pipeline, which is expected to build from the Krasnodar territory in the Crimea, is on time, reports RIA " Novosti "." in the construction of gas pipeline infrastructure and there are no issues. We heard the report of organizations that deal with this issue, " said Novak. For example, He noticed that the story is about the generation facilities. Yegorov said that the first blocks of 2 construction in the Crimea basic thermal power plants with a capacity of 940 MW will be launched in 2017, with full capacity expected to come out in 2018." The moment you enter the base power plant pipeline (the Kuban, Crimea) will be built. The main source of gas supply 2 base stations will be under construction pipeline, " said Egorov. The Minister did not rule out that the commissioning of the first units on 2 base stations will be at the expense of gas " Chernomorneftegaz ". Egorov on the last working day of the week said about the start of construction in Simferopol and Sevastopol 2 base thermal power plants with a total capacity of 940 MW.
Novak inspected the site on the Crimea and Kuban sides of the Kerch Strait, where it will be laid electrical cable. He also inspected the construction of substations "Cafe" at Feodosiya and power lines. Work to improve the electric grid system, according to Novak, is proceeding satisfactorily." at the first stage (energy bridge) will be used As the main source of energy supply. Everything will be depending on the political situation in Ukraine. Maybe it will be transit, parallel operation. After the launch of the new line using the conclusion about the mode of its Operation will take the system operator, " said Egorov. Currently Crimea consumes about 900 MW, while the flows from Ukraine is 700 MW, said Egorov. Before the end of the current year, primarily energy bridge in the region should be introduced, which will allow to give to the Crimea from the mainland To 300-350 MW. The second phase will provide an opportunity to increase the power flow To 800-840 MW, which will give the possibility to exclude the dependence of the Peninsula from the supply of electrical energy through the territory of Ukraine. In addition, Novak said that " 1. 5 million Diesel generators that were brought to the Crimea, installed, located on socially significant objects and if necessary will be included in the work." Remember, now the Crimea is 70% dependent on the supply of electric energy from Ukraine. On 3 July it was announced that the Ministry of energy of Russia agreed with Ukraine on the price of supply of electrical energy to the Crimea Until the end of 2015 in the amount of 3, 42 rubles per kilowatt-hour. Thus, the Price of electric power supply to Crimea from Ukraine from July 1 increased by 14, 38% (previously it was 2, 99 ruble per kilowatt-hour).
