Equipment and materials for the construction of new energy complexes were delivered to Verkhoyansky district, Yakutia
6In the Arctic regions of Yakutia, 6 new power complexes will be constructed by the end of 2021, to replace the overaged diesel power plants.
Yakutsk, April, 21. IA Neftegaz.RU. As part of the first energy service contracts signed with Sakhaenergo (a subsidiary of Yakutskenergo, member of RusHydro), investors proceeded to deliver equipment and materials intended for the 2 facilities in the rural locality of Tabalakh and Verkhoyansk, Verkhoyansky ulus, the Sakha Republic (Yakutia).
This news was announced by RusHydro on April 20, 2021.
Potential investors were Kompleksnye Energeticheskie Reshenia and ENELT GROUP.
The enterprises will install modern power plants in 6 localities isolated from the Russia’s unified power utility system and located beyond the Arctic Circle.
RusHydro and the government of Yakutia are implementing a common pilot project involving the construction of hybrid power complexes, including photovoltaic and diesel power plants with energy storage systems.
RES in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) are considered as reliable sources of power supply for the Arctic regions.
Currently, 3 energy service contracts have been signed for the construction of 6 facilities in the Verkhoyansky and Momsky districts of Yakutia.
New automated hybrid power complexes, including photovoltaic diesel power plants with a storage system, will be built in the following rural localities:
- Verkhoyansk (photovoltaic power station 1000 kW with a storage unit),
- Tabalakh ,Verkhoyansky ulus (diesel power plant 600 kW, photovoltaic power station 330 kW with a storage system),
- Moma (diesel power plant, 3300 kW, photovoltaic power station 1500 kW with storage system),
- Sasyr (diesel power plant, 600 kW, photovoltaic power station 215 kW with storage system),
- Tebyulyakh (diesel power plant, 250 kW, photovoltaic power station 90 kW with a storage system),
- Kulun-Elbyut (diesel power plant, 250 kW, photovoltaic power station 90 kW with a storage system).
The new power complexes will be completed by the end of 2021, to replace the overaged DPPs, which are significantly inferior in terms of reliability, energy efficiency and performance.
In 20232024, another sixty six 2nd and 3rd phase facilities will be constructed.
Procurement procedures are already being carried out for these facilities, including the preparation of tender documents.
Energy service contracts assume that all works will be financed by the investors that are parties to these contracts.
Power complexes built by investors will be operated by Sakhaenergo. The return on investment will be based on the results of the achieved efficiency by maintaining fuel costs savings in the tariff for 10 years, and then power complexes will become the property of Sakhaenergo.
In the future, based on the experience of these pilot projects, RusHydro plans to use the mechanism of energy service contracts for the further development of local power industry in the Far East.
