Power Unit No. 2 of the Grozny Thermal Power Plant (TPP) was brought into operation today during the annual General Shareholders Meeting of Gazprom. The power unit is the final facility in the Gazprom Group's ambitious program for the creation of new capacities under its capacity supply agreements (CSAs).
A teleconference was held between the Meeting participants and the Grozny TPP, with Ramzan Kadyrov, Head of the Chechen Republic, and Denis Fyodorov, Director General of Gazprom Energoholding, present at the facility's premises.
Power Unit No. 2 has a capacity of some 180 MW. The aggregate installed capacity of the TPP has thus reached its design value of approximately 360 MW.
The new power plant, which is consolidating the stability of southern Russia's energy system, will satisfy the electricity needs of the Chechen Republic to a considerable extent, thereby contributing to the region's socio-economic development.
