Agreement on the construction of a wind farm on Sakhalin was signed at the WEF

The agreement on the construction of a wind farm in the Uglegorsk region of Sakhalin was signed by the KRDV, the Eastern Mining Company and the regional government within the framework of the Eastern Economic Forum. The document was signed by the general director of the KRDV Igor Nosov, the general director of the VGK Maxim Kuzemchenko and the chairman of the government of the Sakhalin region Alexey Belik.

According to the press service of the RF Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, according to Maxim Kuzemchenko, the Uglegorsk wind farm is one of the key elements of the strategy for the future responsible development of the VGK.

“Energy from renewable sources will power the transport coal conveyor under construction and the fleet of dump trucks being converted to electric traction. Together, these projects will form the previously announced Green Coal Cluster, ”he said.

Currently, Sakhalin generates electricity mainly through the combustion of fossil fuels, which negatively affects the environment and public health. According to the plan of regional authorities, by 2025 the island region should achieve carbon neutrality. Getting electricity from renewable energy sources is one of the main measures to achieve this goal.

As Igor Nosov noted, the Sakhalin Oblast is characterized by the presence of a high wind potential, the rational use of which will make it possible to achieve the goals of hydrocarbon neutrality.

“The investment project of the Eastern Mining Company for the creation of a wind park will become the largest in the field of wind energy in the entire Far East, and will be one of the drivers for the development of this high-tech industry in the entire Far Eastern Federal District. The implementation of such large green energy projects will significantly increase the share of renewable energy sources in the energy balance and provide conditions for the energy transition of the economy of the Far East, ”he added.

The Uglegorsk wind farm will include 16 wind turbines located in areas with difficult terrain and high wind potential. To date, two potential sites for the installation of wind turbines have been identified. Investments in the project will amount to about 8,5 billion rubles. The VGK plans to start the implementation of the project in 2022, and by the end of 2024 - to start operation.
