Power generation by enterprises of JSC Inter RAO — Electric Power Plants in the reporting period amounted to 22.291 billion kWh, having increased by 12.72% compared to 2020. The growth is mainly attributed to increased power consumption in the UES of Russia by 3.9% in comparison with the corresponding period of the previous year, as well due to the lower average monthly air temperature in comparison with the last year.

In Q1 2021, the installed power plant capacity of JSC Inter RAO – Electric Power Plants decreased by 1.0% (or 214.44 MW) compared with the same period of 2020 and amounted to 21.458 GW (in 2020 – 21.672 GW). This indicator was influenced by several factors:

  • decommissioning of inefficient equipment of the Kashirskaya SDPP totalling 410 MW (including 80 MW of unit No. 7 since May 5, 2020 и 330 MW of unit No. 3 since January 1, 2021);
  • decommissioning of hydroelectric unit No. 2 of the Iriklinskaya HPP with a capacity of 7.5 MW from May 1, 2020;
  • commissioning of Primorskaya TPP with an installed capacity of 195 MW;
  • increase upon recertification of the installed capacity of Pregolskaya TPP (+7.828 MW), Mayakovskaya TPP (+0.26 MW) from June 2020.

In the first quarter of 2021, due to an increase in the share of generation on less economical steam power equipment relative to the share of more economical generation on steam and gas equipment, there was growth of specific fuel equivalent consumption for power generation by 1.0 g of specific fuel per kWh.

As a part of the maintenance routine in Q1 2021, the Inter RAO – Electric Power Plants completed 1 medium repair of a turbine (total power generation capacity of 447 MW), 2 medium repairs of boilers (total steam capacity of 505 t/h), 11 current repairs of turbines (total capacity of 2930 MW) and 2 repairs of boiler units (total steam generating capacity of 10090 t/h).

Heat distribution by power plants of JSC Inter RAO - Electric Power Plants increased by 16.2% in comparison with the corresponding period of the previous year and amounted to 2000.133 thousand Gcal. The increase in heat output is related to a decrease in outside temperatures in the regions where power plants are installed.
