30 billion rubles for the development of power grid Yakutia want to include in the development of the Far East

On June 19, a working meeting was held between the head of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Yegor Borisov, and Sergei Tolstoguzov, Director General of RAO Energy Systems of the East, dedicated to the development of the republic's electric power industry.

According to the press service of the administration, the leaders discussed the construction of the Yakutsk TPP-2. According to Egor Borisov, in this case, the talk is about the energy security of the entire Central Energy District of the republic, so there should be no delay in solving this major problem.

Tolstoguzov said that already this year it is planned to begin installation of supporting metal structures. All major work at the Nizhnevartovsk Hydroelectric Power Plant-2 will be performed by local construction organizations, and only special work will be entrusted to third-party specialized enterprises.

Egor Borisov warned that in accordance with the law adopted in the republic on public control over the construction of all important objects, public control will be established.

The meeting also discussed issues of financing the construction of large diesel power plants (DPP) in Khonuu, Batagay and Tiksi. It was decided by the end of the summer to conclude an Agreement between the Government of Yakutia and JSC RAO ES of the East, which will stipulate all the construction conditions agreed upon at the meeting.

In addition, the meeting participants found common approaches and mutual understanding regarding the transfer of the Svetlinskaya HPP to the jurisdiction of JSC RusHydro and the project for the capitalization of energy assets of Yakutia in the authorized capital of JSC Yakutskenergo.

The sides paid close attention to the development of network management. Today, Despite the fact that the republic has built powerful transmission lines, Suntarsky, Lensky, Nyurbinsky and a number of other areas continue to suffer from a shortage of electricity.

Over 30 billion rubles are required to modernize the power grid in Yakutia. Neither the republic nor the RusHydro company have such funds. It is also not possible to shift such a significant amount of costs to consumers by raising the investment component of the tariff.

The only real option is to include these works in the federal target program for the development of the Far East. Moreover, the participation of the state in the development of the Far Eastern macro-region is precisely the development of infrastructure, including energy. As Sergei Tolstoguzov stated, there is simply no other alternative.
