The Protocol also states the need to set up a regional chain of service centers for the maintenance of gas turbine units.
"A powerful industrial and logistic cluster is being established in the south of Primorsky Krai, and our task is to supply this "growth point" with the necessary energy infrastructure. We need new capacities right here, right now, and I am sure that the Protocol we've signed will help us to solve our tasks in the region more effectively," said Yevgeny Dod, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of RAO Energeticheskiye sistemy Vostoka and Chairman of the Management Board of RusHydro.
"Industrial turbines are very up-to-date particularly in the south of Primorsky Krai and at Vladivostokskaya CHP-2. From 2018 we will put out from service about 200 MW, and we need new equipment to prevent power deficit," said Sergey Tolstoguzov, General Director of RAO Energeticheskiye sistemy Vostoka.
"We are glad to take part in upgrading the energy infrastructure of Primorsky Krai, which will lead industrial development of this region to a brand new qualitative level.
