Trutnev: power engineers must meet the needs of the economy in Yakutia

Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev said that power engineers must meet the necessary needs of the economy of Yakutia. He instructed the government of the republic to prepare proposals for ensuring reliable energy supply to the Western region of Yakutia, including the study of the possibility of using renewable energy sources.

As EastRussia was informed in the press service of the embassy, ​​Yuri Trutnev held a meeting on the work of the energy complex of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). It was noted that such large-scale projects as the construction of the first stage of the Yakutskaya SDPP-2, 220 kV overhead line "Chernyshevsky-Mirny-Lensk-Peleduy" have already been implemented in the region. After the accession of the Western and Central energy regions to the IES of the East, the reliability of power supply to consumers in the region has significantly increased. Reconstruction of the Neryungrinskaya SDPP began as part of the provision of energy supply to the Eastern landfill. RusHydro has begun work on the construction of the second stage of the Yakutskaya GRES-2. Also, PJSC RusHydro is carrying out large-scale work to modernize local energy facilities using renewable energy technologies. In the coming years, modern hybrid energy complexes will appear in more than 70 remote, energy-isolated Yakut villages.

The main unresolved problem is the issues of tariff regulation of the power grid complex of the republic. During the meeting, it was considered expedient to ensure the development of a mechanism for covering economically justified expenses of Yakutskenergo.

In the Western energy region of the republic, due to the extreme low water on the Vilyui river, the reserves of hydro resources in the Vilyui reservoir are 71% of the norm. As Plenipotentiary Envoy Yuri Trutnev noted, given the existing problems with the water content of the reservoirs, it is necessary to look for other ways of generating electricity.

“To use the wind, the sun, perhaps to build low-power nuclear power plants. The republic cannot develop without energy, the economy cannot develop. Electricity production should be adjusted to the needs of the economy, and not vice versa, ”said Yuri Trutnev.

RusHydro plans to compensate for the decrease in the output of the Vilyuysk HPPs by organizing the flow of power through power lines from the southern energy region of Yakutia.

The Ministry for the Development of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation and the government of Yakutia instructed the plenipotentiary to submit proposals to stimulate electricity consumption, taking into account the promising development of the region.
