Companies Rosneftegaz offered to invest in Bilibino CHP in Chukotka

The state company Rosneftegaz may become an investor in problematic energy projects in the Far East, for example, the coal-fired Bilibinskaya CHPP in Chukotka, Kommersant reports.

According to the publication, by 2019-2020, the nuclear power plant will be closed in Bilibino, and the city's heat supply will be in question. In 2014, for additional financing of RusHydro's projects in the Far East, it was agreed to include the construction of the Bilibinskaya CHPP in Chukotka in the investment program of Rosneftegaz, RusHydro said in a draft annual report published last week. The CHPP is to replace the 2019 MW Bilibino NPP of Rosenergoatom, which is being decommissioned in 2020-48. RusHydro confirmed that the attraction of Rosneftegaz as a strategic investor in the project is being discussed, but the final decision has not been made. The Energy Ministry and Rosenergoatom do not comment on this.

The power supply to Bilibino should be provided by a floating nuclear power plant, which will be installed in Pevek by 2018, but it will not replace the city's heat supply. The program for the long-term development of the energy sector in the Far East provides for a 48 MW pulverized coal power plant, together with the Bilibino-Pevek 110 kV networks, its cost in 2014 prices is 25,1 billion rubles, the publication reports.
