Inter RAO is exploring the possibility of building a powerful coal-fired power plant to export energy to China
Inter RAO is exploring the possibility of building the world's largest coal-fired power plant with a capacity of 8 GW to export electricity to China. The Chinese newspaper South China Morning Post writes about it.
With reference to the head of Inter RAO Boris Kovalchuk, the publication reports that the company is considering the cost and timing of such a project. The new TPP should use coal from the Erkovetskoye deposit in the Amur region as fuel. According to analysts, construction may cost about $ 12 billion. Cheap borrowed funds from China are considered as the most likely source of financing.
Negotiations with the PRC on the development of the Erkovetskoye field and the construction of the Erkovetskaya TPP in the region have been going on for a long time. In February 2014, the Governor of the Amur Region, Oleg Kozhemyako, announced that the implementation of this project would begin no earlier than 2017–2018. The station will require 800 kV DC transmission lines with a length of 2 thousand kilometers.
