Aksenov dismissed the Minister of energy of the Crimea because of the situation with power supply

“On track we have the first stage was supposed to be in March 2016, but we have set our engineers the task that the deadline was adjusted,” – said the Minister, adding that the final deadline is December 20.

According to the April decree of the RF government, the first phase power bridge with a capacity of up to 400 MW should be running up to 25 December 2015

An energy bridge to Crimea built under the Federal program of development of Crimea until 2020 Project, which involves the laying of underwater cable across the Kerch Strait with a flow of about 850 MW, is being implemented to ensure the independence of energy supply in the Crimean Federal district on supplies from Ukraine.

It is expected that by 2016 the energy bridge from Krasnodar Krai will be delivered about 800 MW of electricity per day. These volumes will allow to satisfy the load during winter peak periods, when consumption increases to 1-1,2 thousand MW per day.

As previously reported, the cost of works related to engineering survey, design and construction of electric grid facilities for the Crimea, representing 47.3 billion rubles.

In terms of energoblok

In the Crimea in the conditions of energoblok necessary to ensure the uninterrupted operation of existing generating capacity.

“We must ensure reliable operation of power equipment, which now actually in terms of energoblok provides about 35-40% of electricity, he said while visiting one of three sites in the Crimea, where mobile gas-turbine power plant. – It is necessary to keep this equipment working. Here there is a complete local execution, delivery of necessary fuel. In warehouses has fuel for 30 days. We need to provide timely maintenance of equipment in the fan chart to ensure reliable operation until connection of the Kuban power system”.

In the Crimea will be introduced only 940 MW own generating capacity before 2018, said Novak. “Here will be built 940 MW of capacity. This work is already underway on the site of the Simferopol (470 MW) and Sevastopol (470 MW). The construction of these power plants will gradually end in 2017-2018,” said the Minister.

Now the need of the Crimea is about 1000-1200 MW. Construction of power plants is conducted under the Federal target program of development of the Peninsula.”Will be built here 940 MW of capacity. This work is already underway on the site of the Simferopol (470 MW) and Sevastopol (470 MW). The construction of these power plants will gradually end in 2017-2018,” said the Minister.

Now the need of the Crimea is about 1000-1200 MW. Construction of power plants is conducted under the Federal target program of development of the Peninsula.

Created the supply has a negative impact on the power system of Ukraine, also said Novak. “Any energy system maintains the balance of power as energy producers and consumers. In the event of a major consumer, and the Crimea is the consumer of approximately 1000 megawatts, it has a negative impact overall on the grid including Ukraine,” he said.
