CHPP in Sovetskaya Gavan

For residents of the port city Sovetskaya Gavan, the new CHPP is a window to the future. It is not just that they have been waiting for it for a long time, they lived here, without exaggeration, with these expectations. Mayskaya GRES, erected back in 1935, is dilapidated and supplies electricity with interruptions. Electricity seems to be there, but expensive, unreliable and in an obvious shortage.

Now the situation is changing: in 2016, a new CHP plant will start operating in Sovetskaya Gavan. Design, construction permits, preparation and approval of documentation are close to completion. Part of the equipment has been delivered, part has been ordered. Preparation of the site and related infrastructure for the main stage of construction work has already begun: a road and railways are being built, along which the equipment necessary for construction will be delivered to the future power plant. Later, the same route will deliver fuel. There is confidence: the deadlines will be met, the facility will not become long-term construction. After all, 80% of the main equipment of the new CHPP has already been manufactured, and some of the units have been delivered to the construction site. The preliminary work is financed by RAO Energy Systems of the East. Construction at the expense of funds allocated by a targeted decree of the President of the country is being carried out by JSC RusHydro.

First of all, the construction is aimed at ensuring the uninterrupted supply of electricity and heat to residential and industrial facilities of the Soviet-Havana and neighboring Vanino district.

“The development of the infrastructure of the port special economic zone, the construction of cargo terminals, industrial enterprises without reliable energy supply is impossible,” says the head of the Soviet-Gavansky district, Yuri Bukhryakov. “It’s impossible to give it to the outdated Mayskaya State District Power Plant, therefore, the construction of a new CHP is vital.”

Plans for the construction of industrial facilities in the Soviet Harbor are many: it is expected to build a multi-port and ship repair center, container and coal terminals, industries for fish and seafood processing. You can start these building projects only after the restrictions on the connection to the mains and heat are removed.

Construction of the station will finally solve the problem with the city's water supply. "Hot water is not a blessing, but a necessity for a normal life," says Pavel Borovsky, the mayor of Sovetskaya Gavan. "With the advent of the CHP, the townspeople will finally be able to use hot water all year round."
