Mutnovsky GeoPPs in Kamchatka became the largest objects in the open registry of qualified renewable energy sources
NP "Market Council" recognized two geothermal plants of RusHydro in Kamchatka - Mutnovskaya (50 MW) and Verkhne-Mutnovskaya (12 MW) - as qualified generating facilities operating on the basis of renewable energy sources. According to the results of checking the generating equipment and documents, the experts of NP Market Council confirmed the compliance of the Mutnovsky GeoPPs with the necessary criteria, the press service of RusHydro said.
Mutnovsky GeoPPs have become the most powerful objects in the register of qualified RES facilities. RusHydro GeoPP - the first geothermal objects in the register, in addition to them, four small hydropower plants, solar, wind, biogas stations and a mini heat and power plant passed qualification. The total installed capacity of eight previously listed stations is about 10 MW.
Geothermal energy is not currently included in the system of support for renewable energy sources in the wholesale and retail markets, which constrains its further development in Russia. On the explored geothermal deposits of the Kamchatka Territory, it is possible to obtain more than 1500 MW of electric power. Most of all, today the projects for the construction of power units on a secondary pair with the capacity of 13 MW and the second stage of Mutnovskaya GeoPP (50 MW) have been worked out. The Kuril Islands, the republics of the North Caucasus have a significant potential for the development of geothermal power engineering.
The project for the construction of geothermal power plants at the Mutnovskoye steam hydrothermal field was implemented at the beginning of the 800s. Mutnovskie GeoPPs are unique objects not only in Russia, but also on a global scale. The stations are located at the foot of the volcano of the same name at an altitude of 30 meters above sea level and operate in extreme climatic conditions. Verkhne-Mutnovskaya GeoPP was a block-modular pilot plant at the Mutnovskoye field. The successful implementation of this project in the most difficult climatic conditions made it possible to start the creation of the Mutnovskaya GeoPP. Mutnovskaya GeoPP has one of the best efficiency indicators in the world, it was created on the basis of domestic power equipment. The share of electricity generated by Mutnovskaya GeoPP in the total power consumption of the Central Kamchatka power center is about 4%. Since the moment of inclusion in the network of Mutnovsky GeoPPs, more than XNUMX billion kWh of clean energy have been issued to the power system.
