Sergei Tolstoguzov: "Adoption of the law on TOR will give an opportunity to develop new economic projects"

According to Sergey Tolstoguzov, General Director of RAO ES of the East, the adoption of the law on priority development territories (TOR) will give the entire Far East an opportunity to develop new economic projects.

“This regime provides serious benefits for its participants in almost all areas - the tax burden, customs barriers, restrictions on attracting highly qualified foreign labor are reduced, and administrative and bureaucratic procedures are simplified. This is the next step, which lies in the same plane as the format of special economic zones, but offers more attractive conditions. I am sure that this decision will only benefit the Far Eastern Federal District, "he commented to

He shared that RAO ES of the East "as an energy holding company that, from the point of view of energy supply development, is the vehicle of state policy for the accelerated development of the Far East, welcomes this decision".

“We are always glad to see new large solvent consumers, all the more so since new heat capacities are being built in five regions. On the other hand, almost everywhere these stations will replace the outgoing, worn-out equipment, so the actual increase will not be so high. We are developing a program for the future development of the energy industry in the Far East before 2025, according to which 4,4 GW of new capacities should be introduced by this time, and only 1 GW is intended to meet prospective demand. In the same case, if the scenario for attracting residents to TORs is fully implemented, the regional power systems will need additional input of capacities and network infrastructure facilities. The state has always set special tasks for Far Easterners, and I have no doubt that we will be able to accomplish them, ”the head of the energy holding said.
