Ministry of Energy of Russia supported the project of unification of power systems of Chukotka and Kolyma

Not later than 2015, the construction of the Omsukchan-Bilibino overhead power line should begin, which will connect the power systems of the Chukotka Autonomous Region and the Magadan Region. This information was heard at the Ministry of Energy during the meeting of the governor Roman Kopin with the head of the ministry Alexander Novak. This is primarily due to the imminent decommissioning of the Bilibino NPP, which will occur in the 2019 year.

During his recent visit to Vladivostok, Roman Kopin told the RIA Vostok-Media correspondent that the creation of a single power system instead of two isolated ones is the most effective development option for both regions.

“The implementation of the projects will allow us to use the excess capacity of the Magadan energy system, to form an optimal tariff for the end consumers of the district in Chukotka, and this, in turn, will make it possible to abandon the subsidy from the federal budget, which is about 1 billion rubles annually. Also, this strategy will attract more than 106 billion rubles of private investment, create more than 15 thousand jobs and provide electricity to the largest projects of the Chaun-Bilibino industrial region, ”said Roman Kopin.
