The first gas turbine unit has been supplied to the Vostochnaya TPP

On September 25, at the Vostochnaya TPP in Primorye, the first of three gas turbine units was installed on the foundation, the press service of the head of the region reports.

The ceremony was attended by Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - Plenipotentiary of the President in the Far Eastern District Yuri Trutnev, First Vice Governor of Primorye Vasily Usoltsev, Chairman of the Board of JSC Rus Hydro Yevgeny Dod.

As Yuri Trutnev emphasized, the construction of a new CHPP is a good step for the development of the entire Far East. “It is also a good step for business development, so that the residents of Primorye receive electricity,” the Deputy Prime Minister noted.

In total, three gas turbine units will be installed at the Vostochnaya TPP in Vladivostok. The capacity of each is 46,5 MW. Natural gas will be used here as fuel. Work on the construction of the CHP began in 2012, and it is planned to commission the station in 2015.

As noted in RAO UES of the East, the new CHPP will provide about 20 percent of Vladivostok's electricity needs. CHP "Vostochnaya" will take over the power supply of more than 50 thousand apartments and heat supply to more than 600 houses. Vasily Usoltsev stressed that the Vostochnaya CHPP is being built as part of the development of an investment program for the development of energy in the Far East. Today in Primorye, a number of large energy projects are being implemented and are being prepared for implementation.

“We are planning to create Ussuriiskaya and Artemovskaya CHPPs. The question of what kind of fuel will be used on them is being resolved. On the one hand, this is gas from Sakhalin, on the other, we will also use coal mined in Primorye, ”said the first vice-governor.
