The Company’s efficient operation in the wholesale market for electricity and power is explained by the state of the network infrastructure and specifics of energy balances within the power zones. The drivers of demand for Unipro PJSC power plants are as follows:

  • Smolenskaya GRES contribution to ensuring reliable electric power transit between Russia and Belarus;
  • location of Shaturskaya GRES in the Moscow Region representing an under-served market;
  • participation of Yaivinskaya GRES in supporting a power balance in the Bereznikovsko-Solikamsky hub.

Unipro PJSC has an important competitive advantage, as it holds power units of large single-unit capacities (810 and 800 MW respectively), i.e. Surgutskaya GRES-2 and Berezovskaya GRES, in its assets: these power plants are considered the most economically and operationally efficient among gas and coal power units using steam power technologies, and as part of the investment program, the Company put the most efficient and sought-after steam gas equipment into operation.
