BLAGOVESHCHENSK, March 12. /TASS/. The Vostochny spaceport that is currently under construction in Russia’s Far Eastern Amur region is still facing power cuts, spokeswoman for a local energy company Veronika Alexandrova told TASS on Thursday.
The local energy company Amurenergosbyt (a branch of the Far Eastern Energy Company) has postponed the decision to limit power supply to the construction facilities only for a week because of the builders’ debts. The power cuts have been postponed after the Dalspetsstroy special construction company for the Far East region sent letters of assurance to the power utility, Alexandrova said.
"The electricity supply cuts, announced for Thursday will not happen. Dalspetsstroy has provided us the guarantees. The company is to start the debt repayment within a week," said Alexandrova.
On Wednesday, Amurenergosbyt leadership said that Dalspetsstroy failed to timely pay electricity bills of the Far Eastern Energy Company. The company’s accrued electricity debt has reached $340 thousand.
The Vostochny (Eastern) spaceport is being built near the Uglegorsk town in the Amur region. Vostochny cosmodrome will comprise two launch platforms, an airfield, facilities for crew members’ pre-launch preparation, oxygen-nitrogen and hydrogen plants, 115 kilometres of roadway and 125 kilometres of rail track.
