RusHydro inaugurates Vostochnaya CHP in Vladivostok
September 10, 2018. Moscow, Russia. PJSC RusHydro (MOEX, LSE: HYDR; OTCQX: RSHYY) announces that today, September 10, 2018, it inaugurated Vostochnaya combined heat and power plant (CHP) in Vladivostok. The gas-fired power plant with electric capacity of 139.5 MW and heat output capacity of 432 Gcal/h has annual output of 791 GWh and 1.38 million Gcal, respectively.
The plant is equipped with GE gas turbines. The majority of other key equipment is sourced from Russian manufacturers such as Power Machines (water-tube boilers), Dorogobuzhkotlomash (peak boilers), Entroros (steam boilers), Togliatti Transformer and SVEL Group (power transformers).
The plant will replace obsolete TsPVB (Central steam water boiler), which was dependent on steam transported via 7 km pipeline from Vladivostokskaya CHP-2, making it both, inefficient and dependent on the external source of energy. The boiler was in service for 30 years upon which its equipment service life has expired.
Nikolay Shulginov, Chairman of the Management Board - General Director commented: “The new plant will cover up to 20% of Vladivostok’s total demand for electricity and will provide heat and hot water for 50 thousand households as well as a number of industrial companies”.
Andrei Tarasenko, acting Governor of Primorsky Region, added: “The new plant will create capacity reserve for upcoming new housing projects”.
