Valued at over $618m, the IES’s project entails construction of two combined-cycle plants, with a total capacity of 460 MW.

The units are being seen as a means of improving the power supply, reducing energy cost and offer new opportunities for the development of Nizhnyaya Tura and Lesnoy cities.

The commissioning of power generating units is scheduled for December 2015.
