Sakhalin invited Japan to return to the discussion of the "super ring" project

The authorities of the Sakhalin Oblast proposed to the Japanese side to resume discussion of the Asian energy “super ring” project developed in the early 2000s. Sakhalin Governor Alexander Khoroshavin took the initiative to speak at the international conference "Prospects for the Development of the Asian Super Grid" in Tokyo.

According to the governor, the implementation of the project "will ensure the development of non-primary exports and will promote the accelerated development of the coal industry, create new jobs, increase the gross regional product, increase the revenue side of the budget and, consequently, improve the standard of living of the Sakhalin people."

The project is connected with the integration of the energy systems of Russia, China, South Korea and Japan, as well as with the introduction of new energy facilities on Sakhalin. This includes, in particular, the construction of the Sakhalin GRES-2 with a capacity of 360 MW with the possibility of further expansion, as well as the launch of the fourth power unit at the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk TPP-1 and the modernization of the Noglikskaya GTPP. According to specialists, at the first stage 0,5-0,6 GW of power can be transferred from the island’s power system to Japan, and at the second and third stages - 2-4 GW.
