30.07.2015

The production volume of electricity generated by the TGC-1’s hydro generating plants increased over the 6 months of 2015 by 4.2% to 6,120.1 million kWh.

The production volume of electricity generated by hydro generating plants increased resulting from higher water level of the Kolsky and Karelsky branches compared to the similar period last year. The production volume of electricity generated by thermal power plants reduced by 6.6% to 7,490.0 million kWh.

As a result, the total production volume of electricity generated by the TGC-1’s enterprises, including JSC Murmanskaya CHPP, reached 13,610.2 million kWh over the 6 months of 2015, which is 2% lower than the figures for the same period of 2014.

Reduction of electricity output over the 6 months of 2015 is mainly due to reduction of sales in competitive power supply market resulting from lower volumes of sales in competitive power supply market in 2015, and schedules overall repairs and servicing at the Pravoberezhnaya and Yuzhnaya CHPPs.

The sales volume of electricity have shown a slight growth by 0.4% over the 6 months of 2015 to 15,396.3 million kWh as a result of export operations.
