    Rosatom to maintain electricity output in Russia at 220-222 bln kWh for next five or six years

    January 18, 2022 - Interfax Russia & CIS Energy Newswire


      MOSCOW. Jan 18 (Interfax) - Electricity production at Rosatom Group power plants in Russia will remain at 220 billion-222 billion kWh for the next five or six years, the state nuclear corporation's CEO Alexei Likhachyov said.

      In the next few years Rosatom will both launch new generating units and decommission old ones, and the company's share of electricity generation in Russia should grow from 20% to 25% by 2040, Likhachev told reporters.

      The group produced 222.4 billion kWh of electricity in Russia in 2021, 3.1% more than in the previous year.

      Likhachev said Rosatom wind power generation already exceeds 1 billion kWh, and last year the company fulfilled its KPI 105%.

      Rosatom's nuclear power plants in Russia are operated by Rosenergoatom. The company said in a statement that the growth of electricity production in 2021 was primarily driven by the launch of a sixth generating unit with capacity of 1,200 MW at the Leningrad NPP in March 2021 and the optimization of the duration of scheduled maintenance by 107, the company said.

      Rosenergoatom has eleven operating nuclear power plants, including a floating nuclear power plant, a research center for emergency technical work on nuclear plants, and engineering and technology divisions. The company operates a total of 37 NPP generating units with combined installed capacity of more than 29.5 GW.
