According to the company, this additional capacity will enhance the reliability of Siberia’s energy system and will make consumers in the Krasnoyarsk region less dependent on hydroelectric power.
The new steam lignite-fired unit successfully passed certification tests to confirm 800 MW of installed capacity by the System Operator of Unified Energy System of Russia.
E.ON Russia began receiving capacity payments for the new unit from October, 1.
In late September, the test run of Unit 3 was completed. It was run for 72 hours at the nominal load of 800 MW with the power being fed into the unified energy system of Siberia.
To E.ON Russia’s undoubted relief, the tests confirmed the availability of the new unit for generation in accordance with the statement of the Yenisei Office of the Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision.
The construction of Berezovskaya GRES’s Unit 3 is the final project in E.ON Russia’s investment programme. The company has commissioned 2400 MW of new capacity in the country since 2010.
