On Sakhalin, TPP-2 was commissioned. It was built to replace the obsolete power plant that worked with 1965 of the year. The capacity reaches 120 MW, and the design annual output is 840 million kW / h to meet the needs of the island and create a reserve for the development of new industrial projects.

According to the press service of the Rushydr company, the station passed all tests and is fully operational in the autumn-winter period. All structures and equipment were designed taking into account possible earthquakes and the passage of powerful typhoons, which are not uncommon in Sakhalin. As GRES-2 fuel will use coal and lignite and will load the coal industry in the region.

The construction of GRES-2 on the island began in the year 2015. It became one of four facilities for the construction of which the government allocated 50 billion rubles. The deadlines have been postponed more than once. So, work at the Sakhalin station should have been completed one year earlier. Another facility - a CHPP in Sovetskaya Gavan in the Khabarovsk Territory - will be ready only in the 2020 year.
