    RusHydro: 5 years ago, the first stage of the Yakutskaya GRES-2 was put into operation


    November 29, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      Today marks five years since the commissioning of the first stage of Yakutskaya GRES-2. The station provides light and heat to the Central Energy District of Yakutia. Since the date of commissioning, the power plant has generated 4.2 billion kW.h of electricity, heat supply amounted to 3,443 thousand Gcal. Since 2019, GRES-2 has been operating in the Unified Energy System of Russia. The decision to build the station was made in 2012. This is due, first of all, to the need to replace the retired capacities of the Yakutskaya GRES, as well as to create a reserve of electric power.

      Original Press Release:

      Nov. 28 -- RusHydro issued the following news release:

      Today marks five years since the commissioning of the first stage of Yakutskaya GRES-2. The station provides light and heat to the Central Energy District of Yakutia. Since the date of commissioning, the power plant has generated 4.2 billion kW.h of electricity, heat supply amounted to 3,443 thousand Gcal. Since 2019, GRES-2 has been operating in the Unified Energy System of Russia.

      The decision to build the station was made in 2012. This is due, first of all, to the need to replace the retired capacities of the Yakutskaya GRES, as well as to create a reserve of electric power. Work on the construction site began in 2014, after the station project passed all the necessary examinations. In 2015, the thermal circuits of the power plant buildings were closed, and the installation of gas turbines began. Equipment testing began in 2016. The solemn ceremony of launching the station took place on November 28, 2017.

      Yakutskaya GRES-2 is a modern highly automated power facility adapted for reliable operation in the extreme natural and climatic conditions of central Yakutia, where the annual temperature difference exceeds 100 degrees, and permafrost is located at the base of the station. The main equipment of the station includes four power units, each of which consists of a gas turbine plant with a waste heat boiler, and three peak hot water boilers with a plant-wide infrastructure. Natural gas from the Srednevilyuiskoye gas condensate field is used as fuel.

      In the coming years, at the site of the decommissioned Yakutskaya GRES (1970), the second stage of the Yakutskaya GRES-2 will be built.
