The Crimea looks for alternatives to western turbines

It is impossible to start the construction of new gas electric stations in the Crimea due to the EU and US sanctions that ban the energy equipment supply to the peninsula. The Russian car manufacturers can’t offer competitive by efficiency gas turbines of medium and high capacity. As an alternative “Rosseti” and the Government of Crimea suggest the distributed generation in blocks of 25-50 MW in connection with the gas networks that will lead to the project’s rise of value by 40% but the Ministry of Energy doesn’t support the idea.

 The Government of Crimea discusses the alternative variant of development of the regional energy sector on the basis of the distributed generation of small capacity instead of 2 large thermal power plants, the head of the Assembly of Sevastopol, A. Chaly said. According to him, such a scenario will allow to avoid the western sanctions in respect of equipment supply. Instead of turbines of 90-100 MW capacity it is planned to use the domestic one of 25MW and 50MW capacity, Mr. Chaly explained. He added that the small capacity blocks are easier to be connected to the gas distribution networks.
