"Rostegh" and Chinese Shenhua will build a TPP in the Far East

The Russian state corporation Rostec and the Chinese Shenhua signed a memorandum providing for the possibility of building thermal power plants (TPPs) in the Far East to export electricity to China. Rostec CEO Sergei Chemezov told reporters about this during his visit to China.

The construction of generating facilities and high-voltage transmission lines is planned as part of a project to develop the Ogodzhinsky coal deposit in the Amur Region.

During the development of the field, it is planned to create mining and concentrating facilities (coal mines, a processing plant), as well as related social and transport infrastructure.

It is assumed that high-calorific coal from the field will be exported to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, primarily to China. At the same time, low-calorie coal can be used to produce electricity at a coal-fired power plant at the field.

The next stage in the development of the infrastructure of the field "Rostec" is considering the possibility of building generating facilities and high-voltage transmission lines for exporting electricity to China.

"The decision on the volume of power generation facilities for construction will be made on the basis of calculations of the potential of the electricity sales market in Russia and the possibilities of exporting electricity to China and other countries of the Asia-Pacific region," Rostec explained.

In June 2014, a subsidiary of Rostec signed a memorandum with the structure of the Chinese Shenhua on the joint development of the Ogodzhinsky coal deposit with an approximate investment of $ 5 billion. The total reserves of the Herbikano-Ogodzhinsky coal-bearing region are estimated at 1,6 billion tons of thermal coal.
