28 December 2020

TGC-1 PJSC has entered into its first non-regulated agreement for selling electric energy with Siburenergomanagement JSC (a company of SIBUR Holding).

Alfred Yagafarov, Deputy Managing Director for Electricity & Capacity Sales: “TGC-1 PJSC has a unique structure of production assets. Hydroelectric generation accounts for 40% of the rated capacity: this is about 3 thousand MW. We are ready to supply this carbon-free electric energy to industrial consumers, thus helping to improve the competitive advantages of their products, especially those sent to exports.”

Environmentally friendly green energy will be supplied by Lesogorskaya HPP in the Leningrad Oblast.

Vladimir Tupikin, SIBUR’s Director for Power and Resourcing: “Reducing the climatic impact is one of the SIBUR’s priorities, which is set forth in the Company’s Strategy for the Sustainable Development until 2025. Our partnership with TGC-1 PJSC for supplying HPP energy is an important stage in systematically achieving our long-term goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We intend to further use the potential of renewables to reduce the negative impact on the climate and to minimize the carbon footprint of our products.”

TGC-1 PJSC continues to enter into agreements for supplying HPP energy to industrial enterprises in the North-West of Russia. In the nearest future, it is planned to supply power from two stations of the Niva HPPs Cascade in the Murmansk Oblast.
