SOCHI, July 21 (Itar-Tass) — A total of 46 present-day energy facilities will make reliable electricity power supply to Sochi during the Olympic Games 2014, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said.
Speaking at a meeting at the response centre for preparations for the Olympic and Paralympic Games on Saturday, Novak said, “A total of 16 facilities have been put into operation. Among them are three facilities, which supply electricity power to alpine skiing test competitions.”
“The implementation of these projects will allow us to increase generating capacities of the resort by two or three times,” the minister added.
As part of the working trip to Sochi the energy minister inspected several energy facilities of the mountain and coastal clusters. “I can consider the inspection of facilities positive. Power engineers worked hard and resolved issues successfully,” the minister stressed.
Till the yearend eleven facilities will be put into operation in Sochi. Among them, Novak named power substations in Bocharov Ruchei and Vereshchaginskaya.
The Adler thermal power plant with the capacity of 360 mW will cover over one third of peak demand during the winter Olympic Games 2014.
In 2013 power engineers are planning to complete the construction and the reconstruction of additional 19 energy facilities in Sochi.
