KUDEPSTA POWER PLANT
KUDEPSTA POWER PLANT
The Kudepsta Power Plant was developed for the supply of electricity and power for the XXII Olympic Winter Games and XII Paralympics Winter Games 2014 in Sochi, and thereafter, will be considered as a base-load plant for the Krasnodar region. The power plant is located at Kudepsta Village, Sochi Region, Krasnodar Territory, Southern Federal District of Russia. It has a total installed electric capacity of 367 MW. Its three independent power units have installed electric capacity of 109,926 MW, 109,926 MW, 146,568 MW each, and its thermal capacity is up to 300 Gcal/hour. The power distribution scheme are: (1) output to the Federal Grid Company of Unified Energy System grids with voltage of 220 kV; (2) output to the Interregional Distribution Grid Companies Holding with voltage of 110 kV; and (3) supply the nearby consumers with voltage of 10 kV, which is optional.
The power plant’s main equipment and technology solutions reduce delivery time, amount of construction and installation works that will help it to be put into operation ahead of schedule and on budget. It was designed to rapidly operate in the flexible mode, and can work not only in base-load operating mode, but in peak-mode and semi-peak mode as well. It performs the stabilization function of grid parameters, improving the quality of power supply in the region. It has an engine start-up time of 10 minutes and an engine shut-down time of 2 minutes. The unlimited number of starts and stops will have no impact on the resources or maintenance schedule. And has closed cooling circuits, minimum water consumption, no additional costs for water treatment and water consumption.
This project was design and developed with the highest environmental standards as it has the nod and approval from the Federal Service on Surveillance for Consumer Rights Protection and Human Well-Being as well as a very high support from the Government of the Russian Federation to finish all construction works and put the power plant into operation according to approved schedule. To facilitate its construction, special “Olympic” federal government laws and orders has been applied.
This project is one of strategic opportunity that Siraj-Al-Liel is offering, and thus, urging high-level business entrepreneurs to participate.
