The launch of a liquid hydrogen plant near Magadan is scheduled for 2019 year.

JSC RusHydro and the holding RAO Energy Systems of the East (RAO ES of the East, part of the RusHydro group) together with the Japanese Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. It is assumed that the pilot complex of the plant for the production of liquefied hydrogen in the Magadan region will be launched in 2019, the press service of RAO ES East reported, citing CEO Sergei Tolstoguzov.

Earlier it was reported that a pilot complex with a capacity of 10 tons of liquefied hydrogen per day is planned to be launched by 2017. An agreement on this was signed by RAO ES of the East and Kawasaki in June 2013 at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum.

S. Tolstoguzov noted that the capacity of the pilot complex will be 11,3 tons of hydrogen per day.

The industrial complex with a capacity of 200 tons of hydrogen per day and energy consumption up to 510 MW should be introduced in the 2026 year (previously planned to be introduced before the 2025 year - IF).

Now Russian energy and Japanese partners are conducting a detailed study of the project, in particular, they determine the construction site, sources of financing and the cost of the project.

"Construction of a hydrogen liquefaction plant will help not only increase the utilization of the Kolymskaya and Ust-Srednekanskaya HPPs, eliminating the region's energy surplus, but will also reduce the average electricity tariff for the end consumer," Tolstoguzov noted.

JSC RAO Energy Systems of the East was established on July 1, 2008 as a result of the reorganization of RAO UES of Russia. The holding includes Far Eastern energy companies, such as: OJSC DRSK, OJSC DGK, OJSC DEK, OJSC AK Yakutskenergo, OJSC Magadanenergo, OJSC Kamchatskenergo, OJSC Sakhalinenergo, and OJSC Mobile Energy "and a number of non-core companies.

The installed electric capacity of the power plants of the Far Eastern energy companies, which are part of JSC RAO ES of the East, is 9087 MW; thermal power - 17 892 Gcal / hour; the length of electrical networks of all voltage classes is more than 102 thousand km.
