Installed capacity of JSC Inter RAO - Electric Power Plants in Q1 2019 decreased by 1.1% in comparison with the corresponding period last year, totaling 22.4 billion MW (Q1 2018 – 22.6 billion MW). The indicator was shaped by the following factors:

  • Commissioning of three energy units with the installed capacity of 340 MW at Pregolskaya TPP in the Kaliningrad region;
  • An increase of 16 MW in the installed electric capacity of current unit of Iriklinskaya TPP;
  • Decommissioning of inefficient equipment of two power units at the Kashirskaya TPP (totaling 600 MW at both facilities) on January 1, 2019.

Electricity generation by power plants of JSC Inter RAO — Electric Power Plants in Q1 2019 increased by 0.3% in comparison with 2018 and amounted to as much as 24.14 billion kWh. This dynamics is attributed to a higher demand in the power system for electricity generated at the Kostromskaya, Verkhnetagilskaya and Kharanorskaya TPPs. Installed capacity utilization factor of JSC Inter RAO - Electric Power Plants increased by 49.9% in Q1 2019.

The measures implemented to increase energy efficiency, as well as commissioning of modern generating equipment resulted in the decrease of reference fuel consumption for power generation by 2.49 g of reference fuel per kWh.

As part of Q1 2019 repair campaign at power plants of JSC Inter RAO — Electric Power Plants and JSC Nizhnevartovskaya SDPP, repairs of 10 power units (with total electricity generating capacity of 2 620 MW), 3 turbine units (with total electricity generating capacity of 416.5 MW) and 2 boiler units (with total steam generating capacity of 593 t/h) were completed.

In the first quarter of 2019, heat distribution by power plants of JSC Inter RAO — Electric Power Plants decreased by 2.9% compared with the corresponding period last year and totaled 1804.5 thousand Gcal. The decrease is caused by higher average monthly temperature of ambient air in January-March 2019 in the regions serviced by Inter RAO power plants.
