Electric power from the ROSATOM’s Karmalinovskaya Wind Farm have entered the wholesale market
The Karmalinovskaya wind farm began supplying electric power and capacity to the wholesale electric power and capacity market from April 1, 2021.
The Karmalinovskaya wind farm located in the Stavropol Krai, with an installed capacity of 60 MW, includes 24 wind turbine generators. Local content of facility equipment, as confirmed by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, amounts to 68%.
“In 2020, our serial production of wind turbine components and assemblies in Volgodonsk reached its design capacity, and the Karmalinovskaya wind farm has already been supplied with equipment completely manufactured in Russia. While implementing this project, we increased the required local content. With an elaborate supply chain and our own production, I can confidently say that we are ready to meet the requirements of the new RES development support program (CSA 2.0) to further deepen local content, export equipment and services,” said Alexandr Korchagin, CEO of NovaWind JSC.
Rosatom is currently implementing a program for wind farm construction at three more sites in the Stavropol Krai and the Rostov Region. In total, until 2024, ROSATOM will commission wind power plants with a total capacity of approximately 1.2 GW.
