Vladimir Miklushevsky - Coal production at the Novoshakhtinsky open-pit mine in Primorye will be doubled by the year 2019

The vice-governor of the Primorsky Territory, Vladimir Miklushevsky, said that the volume of coal production at Novoshakhtinskoye section of Primorsky Krai by 2019 will be doubled due to modernization of Artemovskaya CHPP.

RAO ES Vostoka plans to reconstruct the Artyomovskaya CHPP, which is 3,8 million tons of capacity, which will more than double the volume of local coal production. We will start construction in 2017, and in another two years it will be completely transferred to new boilers, "V. Miklushevsky said.

He also added that in the near future from 70% to 80% the share of consumption of Pavlovsk coals in the total share of coal will increase.

"We are converting boiler houses from expensive fuel oil to coal. And every year the growth in coal consumption is increasing by 11-12%. When we talk about transferring boiler houses, we mean only local coal. We do not consider other options. This year the work will be intensified. For these purposes, the Ministry of Energy allocated 500 million rubles. We won the tender and received these funds, which we plan to use for these purposes, "the head of Primorye explained.

Another measure to support the coal industry in the region is the inclusion of Novoshakhtinsk in the number of single-profile territories.
