In the reporting period, power generation by enterprises of Inter RAO — Electric Power Plants amounted to 74.2 billion kWh, having decreased by 19% compared to a similar period in 2019. The change in the indicator is due to a decrease in electricity consumption in the UES of Russia associated with the outside air temperature exceeding the long-term averages in the first quarter and a decline in business activity against the background of the unfavorable epidemiological situation, as well as decommissioning inefficient equipment of the Kashirskaya TPP.

The installed power plant capacity utilization factor of Inter RAO – Electric Power Plants comprised 39% (47% in 2019).

In 2020, the installed power plant capacity of Inter RAO – Electric Power Plants decreased by 3.5% year-on-year and amounted to 21.788 GW (22.572 GW in 2019). This indicator was influenced by several factors:

  • decommissioning of inefficient equipment of three power units at Kashirskaya TPP (with the total capacity of 900 MW) on January 1, 2020, and decommissioning of heating power unit 7 with the capacity of 80 MW on May 1, 2020;
  • decommissioning the hydroelectric unit No. 2 of Iriklinskaya HPP with the capacity of 7.5 MW on May 1, 2020;
  • increasing the installed capacity of Pregolskaya TPP (+7.8 MW) and Mayakovskaya TPP (+0.26 MW) due to recertification;
  • commissioning of power units No. 1, 2, 3 of Primorskaya TPP (totalling+195 MW) in the Kaliningrad region.

As part of 2020 repair campaign at power plants of JSC Inter RAO — Electric Power Plants and JSC Nizhnevartovskaya TPP, repairs of 46 power units (with total electricity generating capacity of 16,356 MW), 56 turbine units (with total electricity generating capacity of 5,611 MW) and 33 boiler units (with total steam generating capacity of 7,412 t/h) were completed.

In 2020, heat distribution by power plants of JSC Inter RAO — Electric Power Plants decreased by 3.3% year-on-year and amounted to 4.338 million Gcal. The decrease in heat distribution is due to a decrease in consumption related to an increase in outdoor air temperature, as well as the termination of heat supply to consumers of Kashirskaya TPP starting from the second half of 2020.
