Integration of the Yenisey Siberia CIP is incorporated into the power supply development programme of Krasnoyarsk Region until the year 2025

The Ministry of Industry, Energy and Housing of Krasnoyarsk Region presented the roadmap and programme for the perspective development of Krasnoyarsk Region for the years 2021-2025. The document manifests the need for technological integration of the facilities of the Yenisey Siberia CIP member companies, such as Kraslesinvest, Polyus and other large companies running their investment projects in the territory of Krasnoyarsk Region. The programme also includes the actions for the development of the Arctic Zone of Krasnoyarsk Region and launch of the new facilities of the Norilsk-Taimyr energy hub and the Vankor Cluster of Rosneft Oil Company.

The roadmap and the programme for the five-year period are designed for the development of the regional power supply infrastructure.  The planned events are intended to ensure the stability of the power supplies in the region, along with the technological capacity of new consumer connection and the renovation of the electric power supply infrastructure.

The regional power industry development measures rely upon the electric power consumption forecast and the required capacity calculated within the united Russian energy system development programme and roadmap. The maximum capacity consumption value for the year 2025 will amount to 7,715 MW, which is 1,160 MW (17.7%) more than the value reported for the year 2019. The power consumption in 2025 is predicted to reach 53,407 million kWh, which is 6,396 million kWh (13.6%) more than in 2019. To cater for this power and capacity demand, the electric grid facilities with the voltage of 110 kV and above with the total transformer capacity of 2486 MWA are planned to be constructed or repaired, and 1170 km of power lines are planned to be built.

“Some projects of the Yenisey Siberia CIP can be implemented only with the development of the electric power system of the region. New companies are expected to become large consumers of electric power, and the perspective development programme provides the foundation for the uninterrupted and full-scale operation of the future facilities,” remarked Director General of the Development Corporation Sergei Ladyzhenko.
